  • I suppose it *could*. But I'm not sure why it should. Now that I think of it, there's also cyclone fence, though that may be more descriptive, since presumably it's strong enough to hold things more or less in place in the face of a strong wind.

    Still searching...

  • Help me, Word(nik)ies! You're my only hope. Anyone know what cyclone shot might refer to, circa 1931? It's used as the title to a chapter in Dashiell Hammett's book The Glass Key, and I can't find a reference. I've tried Google in addition to some actual paper reference books (remember those?), but no luck...
