"You may say that every story needs a setting and that weather is part of the setting." (p.75)
Foster may be bringing up the obvious but I know those are the parts I normally miss. Thinking about the stories we have read so far and others I've read or heard, the weather plays a huge part in the tone or setting in which the story is taking place. Rain in a story evokes the emotions of sadness, fear, depression etc.. Sunshine, happiness, joy, excitement.
Taking the weather descriptions out of literature is like taking the musical soundtrack out of a movie, the picture isn't completely painted like the right emotions may not be felt.
