Another rainy, gloomy day in Baltimore. Obviously, such weather makes us think of this lovely illustration from the Compendium Maleficarum in which a witch on an awesome demonic horse is stirring up quite a tempest! The chapter from the Compendium dealing with malicious rain also includes a lovely anecdote about a father turning his daughter into the authorities for the crime of witchcraft after she lovingly created a shower for his cabbage patch. For real.
