bilby commented on the word tempest in teapot
Seems as though there's a storm brewing.
merely a cloud on the horizon. Or perhaps we're in the eye of the hurricane. Still, it's an ill wind that blows nobody good, and every cloud has a silver lining–we'll be right as rain. I guess just wait and see which way the wind is blowing. Maybe there's a rainy weather report around here somewhere.
