I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it.

That's Terry Pratchett for you. I still like how he descibed the storm in Wyrd Sisters...

"The storm was really giving it everything it had. This was its big chance. It had spent years hanging around the provinces, putting in some useful work as a squall, building up experience, making contacts, occasionally leaping out on unsuspecting shepherds or blasting quite small oak trees. Now an opening in the weather had given it an opportunity to strut its hour, and it was building up its role in the hope of being spotted by one of the big climates."

That was at the beginning of the book, near the end the storm has another good paragraph, but I won't quote it here.
