The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

What does the author mean in the description of Colonel Grangerford in the following passage:

"When he turned into a cloud-bank it was awful dark for half a minute, and that was enough; there wouldn't nothing go wrong again for a week." (ch. 18 pg. 110)

The description depicts Colonel Grangerford as a man who easily gets over anger and doesn't even think about what he was angry about after it is over. Although I believe that "dark, half minute" was probably pretty memorable for whoever he was angry at to begin with.
