A Christmas Carol

Why did Dickens describe Scrooge with the weather?

"overflowings sullenly congealed, and turned to misanthropic ice"

this choice of vocabulary reminds the reader of scrooge, who is both 'sullen' and 'misanthropic', associating him with cold and with being separated from others.

hope this helped yah :)
