Storm on eve of Beltane.

Was anyone else up the Tor in that Storm a week last Saturday night? It was extraordinary weather, and created quite a spectacle. It's made me think a whole lot more about all the mythology and lore associated with "Annwm" the (mythical) underworld portal below the Tor, and beliefs about the Tor being some kind of gateway into other dimensions. I've seen a heavy electrical strm there before, about 15 years ago, by day, and watched the approaching weather coming in qiuckly over the Somerset levels --- so i appreciate that this is just a natural phenomenon; but there really did seem to be a kind of intra psychic confluence of thought, electricity, wind and water --- which to any kid, would just be called "Magic".... if anyone has any ideas about the powers, real or mythical, of the site, just reply below. I'm especially interested in the Zodiac idea.
