Probably, if I had lately left a good home and kind parents, this would have been the hour when I should most keenly have regretted the separation; that wind would then have saddened my heart; this obscure chaos would have disturbed my peace: as it was, I derived from both a strange excitement, and reckless and feverish, I wished the wind to howl more wildly, the gloom to deepen to darkness, and the confusion to rise to clamour.
(Jane Eyre)

Both refers to that wind and to this obscure chaos, which is confirmed by the end of the quotation: "I wished the wind to howl more wildly, the gloom to deepen to darkness, and the confusion to rise to clamour".
