... well, almost !

I was driving home after work yesterday, the sky got blacker and blacker, the wind was getting up, the rain started lashing down in stair-rods (hail, too), the road was turning into a river, the thunder and lightning were getting nearer.

And the music I happened to be listening to ? Bach's great C-minor Passacaglia, a massive, thundering great organ work which keeps grinding on the same doom-laden C-minor chord sequence for about a quarter of an hour.

Somehow, the perfect accompaniment. Can anyone think of anything more appropriate ?
