Det var en mørk og stormfull natt.
Paul Clifford (1830), åpningsordene.
It was a dark and stormy night.
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the house-tops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.
