Bombogenisis is about to hit Wisconsin

Actually I don't think Wisconsin will get the full frontal Bombogenisis. Parts of Montana went from 56 degrees to 20 in one hour, a 36 degree drop and one station at an airport dropped 22 degrees IN SIX MINUTES. THAT, is a Bombogenisis.

What we will get is just a full frontal Polar Vortex and if you are thinking that our 27 degree high is cold - just wait until NEXT week when you will WISH it was 27 degrees. 

This is the reason we are getting this anti-hellish weather.  


The remnants of Super Typhoon Nuri which hit Japan and moved north, slammed into Alaska and then merged with the polar jet stream creating havoc.

This is so powerful that it is twice the needed energy to be classified as a Bombogenisis, it's a Super Bombogenisis (if there was such a thing).

The good thing is that this is an anomaly, and has nothing to do with the rest of the winter.  This is what happens when a butterfly flaps it's wings 10,000 miles away and because of fluid dynamics BAM - we get our asses kicked for 3 weeks.

Sadly my weather station is FUBR.  Don't buy Ocean Scientific weather stations as they are pieces of crap and only last 3 or 4 years.  My plan is to somehow get a new Davis Instruments station but those run some big bucks but are more reliable.  I need to sell more photos.

On a side point on weather - I played the new Columbus disc golf course for the last time in good weather yesterday.  Signs are up.  I guess they did not take my suggestions on safety and there will be some cars getting hit at the Aquatic Center next summer. I guarantee it.  Number 4 is a harder hole when there are cars you will throw over. Looks easy when an empty parking lot.

Maybe we can get some Mae Ward fund to plant a few trees in front of the playground on #2 also. Not that kids will be in harms way but just to give more of a feeling of safety down the road.  But I'm just a dude with a bag full of disc, what do I know!  :-)

World War 1 ended today in 1918 and started the building up to World War 2.  Nine million solders along with Ten million civilians died.  Poppies are used to remember WWI because they are the first flower to grow among the dead.

Scarlet corn poppies grow naturally in conditions of disturbed earth throughout Western Europe. The destruction brought by the Napoleonic wars of the early 19th Century transformed bare land into fields of blood red poppies, growing around the bodies of the dead and once again after WWI in 1914 vast fields of  barren earth were covered with the red poppies.
