Weather Bomb

I just heard the news on the radio.  We are getting a weather bomb tomorrow which is Wednesday.  I admit I rushed to the computer and had to look that up.

Here is what I found out:

A low-pressure system is designated as a weather bomb when it intensifies by at least 24 millibars within 24 hours "
I have no idea what a millibar is, however, when it is mentioned in the same sentence as bomb, then this must be serious.

I agree with you Cookie.  I think our mombean does too.  I saw her go out get in the car and then she brought home extra cat food, groceries for her and dad, bottled water in case our pump stops, put gas in the car.  

All this is confusing since today it is a gorgeous sunny day and most of the snow we got on Saturday is gone!!

 Weather bomb, is this something that I should be concerned about?
I have a hiding place all picked out for us, I am prepared.   Right now I am conserving my energy.

Good plan, Moe, I am with you on the resting up in case we are called into action.  After all mom and dadbean probably need all the help they can get!

What would they do without us?

PS - did Spring actually arrive, or did it completely miss us?

I hope the bomb is a dud and you get to eat all the extra food :)

Weather bomb - that sounds dangerous. But it seems, you all are well prepared to all kinds of adversities.

Spring's not coming this year. Or so it seems.

We hope the weather bomb turns out to be a dud, that the forecasters are just working themselves up into a frenzy over something that tracks out over the ocean.

We did write "hope!"

Thanks for the web cam link, the human has it bookmarked, checked the others too. There's some oval thing on what looks like was the Commons. LOL. It's been a LONG time since she lived there!!

Stay safe!

We sure hope that bomb doesn't explode. Spring sure has gotten lost this year.

Our #1 has been following the PEI news and it looks like there is something really nasty on its way to the Maritimes. Please stay in and stay safe, humans included!

We hope you're all hunkered down and staying safe. We have the Pier 21 web cam up and wow, it's nasty! Saw another live-stream (iPhone) via the CBC web site too. Yikes! Hope it all turns to rain later and washes away...without flooding, of course.

It's great you are planning ahead! We got that weather bomb on Tuesday and frankly, we are ready for those little spring peepers.


We hope you weathered the WEATHERbomb safely. (hugs)
