Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes: Storms

I don't think this week's theme needs any explanations given the past couple of days here on the east coast. So, without futhrer ado, here is this week's Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes - all about STORMS.
“Life isn't finding shelter in the storm. It's about learning to dance in the rain.” 
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”

"There's always another storm. It's the way the world works. Snowstorms, rainstorms, windstorms, sandstorms, and firestorms. Some are fierce and others are small. You have to deal with each one separately, but you need to keep an eye on whats brewing for tomorrow.” 
― Maria V. Snyder, Fire Study

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.” 
― Haruki Murakami

“Our time together feels like a storm, like a wild wind and rain, like something too big to handle but too powerful to escape.”
