14 years of U.S. weather in 33 minutes, set to Beethoven

From Open Culture: "This video packs 14 years of United States weather (1997–2011) into 33 minutes, presenting a total of 120,900 individual frames, each spaced one hour apart. And they're all set to Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 in E flat Major. If you want to get right to the drama, we recommend jumping to the climactic 27th minute."

Wellll, I love Baycloven as much as the next person - I mean, he led us into the Romantic (my) era, and I'm forever grateful. For me, the hi-speed weather watching just doesn't work with that. I would mute the Piano Concerto and crank up some early swing, like maybe Fletcher Henderson's "Wrappin' It Up"
(and by the way - Henderson's band was probably the first to really swing, so much so that later on, Benny Goodman used Henderson's book to swing his own groups), or "Moten Stomp"
or Louis' Hot Fives and Hot Sevens; that kind of thing.
If you're feeling less energetic, maybe some good old Satie.

But that's just me.
Hey, maybe some Wagner.
