We wake up everyday to different weather, either good or bad, however our emotions are depended upon it. One September day arose, rain was falling and so were my emotions.

As in many of Flannery O'Connor's stories, weather is an important indicator of characters' moods and important moments. As Tom Shiftlet drives off with the younger Lucynell Crater in the car, supposedly to go on a honeymoon, "The early afternoon was clear and open and surrounded by pale blue sky;" he still has a chance to redeem himself. But after he abandons her at The Hot Spot, he has lost his chance at salvation; this moment is enforced by the weather: "Deep in the sky a storm was preparing very slowly and without thunder as if it meant to drain every drop of air from the earth before it broke." After the hitchhiking boy has thrown himself out the passenger door, all is really lost for Tom Shiftlet, and "there was a guffawing peal of thunder from behind and fantastic raindrops, like tin-can tops, crashed over the rear of Mr. Shiftlet's car."

“The Storm” The storms presences is essential, without it then none of the events would have taken place.

If there was no storm then Calixta would not have in countered an old friend, Alcee. Though they were both still friends, Alcee seemed to still be infatuated with Calixta even though they are both now married. For if there was no storm, then neither of them would have met and they would have never decided to betray their partners.

This book is arranged into ten different chapters, each containing the main idea in each chapter. In the beginning of the book the author gives a foreword which briefly gives a vision of The Perfect Storm. The author Sebastian Junger wants his book to be completely factual, no dialogue is made up. The direct quotes are recorded from an interview.

It was a pleasantly sunny day in Westernfield. The residents didn't think anything of it since the town had such a steady weather pattern that, in June, days like this were simply taken for granted. But to Marie, the sun's warmth, balanced by the light breeze brushing across her smooth skin made her feel alive. It was certainly something that took her thoughts away from her red SUV being refueled by a money-hungry pump a few yards behind her.
