Correct me if I'm wrong. The Dark and Stormy night contests is an homage to the opening line of PAUL CLIFFORD, where he rattled minutia about the weather rather than just saying "it was a dark and stormy night". In that vain, wouldn't it be better to delve into an excessive and unnecessary level of detail that's more distracting than helpful?
It was a bright glary day and sizzling blades of white light seared from the ocher sun in intermittent blasts that ricocheted off polished chrome and bleached the pavement to pale gray.
