  1. This storm “Bianca” is very much tied to Greek mythology.

    Zephyrus had many wives in various myths. Most well known is his relationship with Chloris, a nymph associated with spring, flowers, and new growth. Her name refers to a light green-yellow color.

    According to myth, Zephyrus and his brother Boreas both adored Chloris and competed for her affection, but the gentle Zephyrus beat his hotheaded brother.

    Believed to be the bringer of Spring, according to Greek mythology, Zephyrus lived in a cave in Thrace.

    After this storm, here comes the Spring!
