Winter is Coming.
Motto of House Stark, A Song of Ice and Fire
The powers of the Warp occasionally manifest as great storms in space rifts and rends in reality that can cut off whole worlds and drive men mad. This personal teleporter bears the motto "I fear not the storm. It shall fear me."
—'On the "Herald of the Storm", Venerated teleporter, Warhammer 40000

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin'.
Bob Dylan, "The Times They Are A-Changin'".

Thunder, I wonder, a storm is coming soon

To blow us all away, like dust on the moon.
Pet Shop Boys, "Luna Park"
You know what they call me in the ancient legends of the Dalek homeworld? The Oncoming Storm. You might have removed all your emotions, but I reckon right down deep in your DNA there's one little spark left. And that's fear. Doesn't it just burn when you face me?
The Doctor, Doctor Who

Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store

but I feel what's to happen has happened before
—Bert in Mary Poppins

Distant thunder rumble. Distant thunder rumble
Rumble hungry like the Beast
The Beast it cometh, cometh down

The Beast it cometh, cometh down
Nick Cave, "Tupelo'".
There's a storm comin'! His storm!
—Grandmother Abigail, The Stand

The wind is blowing straight at me,
A storm will surely begin
I don't want to lie to myself anymore.
Clouds are drifting in the distance,
A storm is coming over here
Nobody will stop me,

I will walk forward, without wavering.


Outside in the cold distance,
a wildcat did growl,
two riders were approaching,

and the wind began to howl!
—"All Along the Watchtower" by Bob Dylan
