Welcome 2018! And welcome cold weather to most of the US. Most crazy are the new terms that are coming out now to describe the crazy weather that is taking place.
Which brings me to Bombogenesis. According to Live Science, "Bomb cyclones" or "weather bombs" are wicked winter storms that can rival the strength of hurricanes and are so called because of the process that creates them: bombogenesis. It's a mouthful of a meteorology term that refers to a storm (generally a non-tropical one) that intensifies very rapidly.
Me? I'm nestled here in Southern California where it will be a tepid 71 degrees today. I'm wearing boots and a down jacket. Stop laughing.
I was wondering,what are people in other parts of the country doing? Do you play board games for six months? What if you have to go outside - how do you prepare? So curious!
I reached out to a few of my friends. "What exactly is there to do outside when you're in the midst of a Bombogenesis?"
Well, um, I guess they find ways to cope with the weather as you can see in one image I got back from my question.
Now here's how I want to help - I will create a "Bombogenesis Cocktail"! That way I feel like I've done my part and also gives me a reason to play mixologist.
And there you go. A little concoction to keep you pleasantly warm on those severely chilly winter nights ;-) I also recommend huddling for warmth. But, maybe, keep that cuddling/huddling indoors - see what happened to my snowy friends above!
Sending you all warm hugs & lots of love!
