Adnan Masri and his fellow fishermen are heading out from Sidon on their last trip before storm "Windy" is scheduled to strike Lebanon Wednesday night. In their traditional "sea calendar," February and March are the months of storms. Masri said God had divided the year into four seasons – summer, fall, winter and spring.Nabih Bawji, a veteran fisherman, says strong storms have hit Lebanon throughout its history, but that recently media outlets have blown things out of proportion. Lebanon witnessed an unprecedented drought last winter, with long periods of mild weather and little rain. This could be part of the reason why the two storms which have hit Lebanon this year – as well as the approaching storm Windy – have received such intense media coverage.
