100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week 13

This week’s prompt was a bit easier!  The prompt words are ‘the unseasonal weather…’  Here is my contribution:

The unseasonal weather took them all by storm.  They drizzled into the stadium, their faces clouded with concern.  Their minds were fogged and voices rumbled like thunder.  The lights dimmed and a sudden lightning flash illuminated the stage, where a diminutive figure breezed into view.  She raised her hand and shouted ‘Hail!’ and the crowd returned her greeting, at first frostily, but then with more heat.  The crowd surged, tempestuous, a howling gale of people, rising on a thermal then falling again as the storm stilled. There was silence as deep as new snow.
