Well, they weather people say that we in California are experiencing a "bombogenesis." The Weather Service says Bombogenesis, a popular term used by meteorologists, occurs when a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours. A millibar measures atmospheric pressure. This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, such as air over warm ocean waters. The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis, which creates what is known as a bomb cyclone.
And that parts of California may have winds up to 100 miles per hour.
We got about two inches of snow last night, and the temperatures are in the thirties. We may get more snow tomorrow. I'm glad our electric power is working.
