OMG, a storm!!!
Lotus....I neeed it... I neeeed it.... Home? What's home? I don't know.
NO MORE LOTUSES! We're getting out of here now!
Now Zeus who masses the stormclouds hit the fleet with the North Wind- a howling demonic gale, shrouding over in thunderheads the earth and sea at once (9, 74-77)
"Any crewmen who ate the lotus, the honey sweet fruit, lost all desire to send a message back, much less return, their only wish to linger there with the lotus eaters, grazing on lotus, all memory of the journey home dissolved forever. (9, 106-110)
"But I brought them back, back to the hollow ships, and streaming tears-I forced them, hauled them under the rowing benches, lashed them fast and shouted out commands to my other, steady comrades: 'Quick, no time to lose, embark in the racing ships!'- so none could eat the lotus, forget the voyage home" (9 110-115)
