Cataclysmic “Bomb Cyclone” Wreaks Havoc On Central United States

Do you LOVE America?


    The weather phenomenon known as the “bomb cyclone” is hammering the central United States.  Blizzard warnings were posted from Colorado to Minnesota on Wednesday while wildfires were a concern for those living in New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma.

    Cataclysmic weather conditions are being reported over large swaths of land and could have the potential to destroy even more farmland already devastated by flooding in the Midwest.  This is the second so-called “bomb cyclone” storm in less than a month hit the central U.S., according to a report by Market Watch.

    Up to 2 ½ feet (0.61 meters) of snow was expected to fall in parts of eastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota, the National Weather Service said. And that was before heavy snowfall disrupted both air and ground travel Wednesday. Winds in excess of 50 mph (80.46 kph) also were expected, creating life-threatening conditions.

    “We’re calling it historic because of the widespread heavy snow. We will set some records,” said Mike Connelly, a weather service meteorologist in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Additionally, transportation officials closed Interstate 29 from east central South Dakota to the North Dakota border and said other stretches of major interstates were likely to close as conditions deteriorated. Numerous traffic crashes were reported in northeastern South Dakota, and the storm knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses in Sioux Falls. South Dakota also experienced another strange apocalyptic weather phenomena known as “thundersnow.” Though not especially rare, snow was accompanied by thunder and lightning in central South Dakota. “It’s essentially a thunderstorm, but it’s cold enough for snow,” Connelly said.

    Market Watch further reported that in Nebraska, the State Patrol was sending additional troopers into the state’s panhandle, and officials closed Interstate 80 in that region. “This storm is going to be dangerous,” Patrol Major Russ Stanczyk said.

    The weather service posted an ice storm warning into Friday morning for a portion of southern Minnesota, saying up to three-fourths of an inch of ice could accumulate on power lines, leading to outages.

      1. “Cataclysmic weather conditions”
        lol no.
        “apocalyptic weather phenomena”
        lol no.

        seriously, quit with the weather doom porn.

        “bomb cyclone” is simply the term for the rapid decrease in barometric pressure associated with a storm. Rapid drops in pressure can generate high winds but lets be frank, heavy snowfall or even occasional blizzard conditions in North Dakota or Minnesota in April aren’t that uncommon, and are hardly “cataclysmic” or “apocalyptic”.

        No one has planted these areas yet either so no crops will be lost.

            • Website link no longer functional, but docs are still researchable.

            • its easier to modify peoples perceptions of severity than it is the weather itself. We do engage in weather warfare but… this event, not so much

          • the weather channel drives alot of this crap, and just like every other specialty cable network, they get advertisers based on ratings. Dragging viewers in keeps the rating up. Viewers are going to stay glued to the boob tube if they think sudden impending disaster is coming.


        • When are they supposed to plant.

          • North Dakota? They plant their primary crops (wheat mostly) in late april to mid may. Ag up there is very aware of the weather conditions, and may delay planting by several weeks.

            so… there are no major crops in yet, and there is plenty of time to get them in.

            Way down here on the Ohio, where its warm and conditions are good, spring planting has not started either.

      2. I am sick of all the weather drama. Has anyone else gotten this way.
        They talk like it has never happened before. They now name winter storms. They use terms like bomb cyclone and polar vortex.
        I bet most of the population thinks things are happening that never have before. Then it is used to scare people about climate change. Notice not global warming. They had to change it to climate change due to the fact that the earth has been cooling recently.
        Then they use climate change for power and money.
        I am just sick of it.

        • Mike, good to hear from you again and agreed about the weather drama. It was 84 in my area today. Supposed to get some rain over the weekend and that’s it. Gonna be wet going to the gun show Sat. but no problem.

          • It is always good to here from you. Sounds like things are going well. 74 and sunny in my kneck of the woods too my friend.

      3. 78 degrees here in Indiana dont give a fook what its doing in Antarctica or demoncrat Colorado. Remember the only day that the cold weather will really matter and affect each and every one of us is the day HELL freezes over lol at least thats what ive been told cus it seems thats when the impossible of everything will occur and that will be the true SHTF day…

      4. Chicken little story is nothing more than attention redirection by the cabel powers to be and i say this cus we have a much bigger and significant problem with farting cows. Lmfao at these idiots

        • You are correct. With the warmer weather I am being fumigated by the smell of cow shit upwind of me. Now for the fly invasion 😮

          • luv da smell of manure in the morning

            • Chooze love the smell of bullshit all day long.

      5. A blistering 67F here on the Monterey Penninsula, second crop of radishes will be ready by next Monday. Squash, eggplant, tomatoes, and such are “lookin’ good Mr. Kotter”. Root veggies and fruit trees are fairing better than expected.

        Ten month growing season here at the coast. Some of us like living in paradise.

        Snow…….I seen it in pictures……lol.

        Be safe….out in the weather….bundle up……BA.

      6. I was in Minot ND for the “Great Storm of 1975”. The base was closed down. Wind chills up to and surpassing -100. Total white outs. No special names or “sky is falling” media ratings pursuit.
        In ND I spent an entire winter and spring working Grave shift on a flight-line, we only stopped regular work when it got to -65, which it frequently got close to. Special rules applied when it was colder, but you still fixed airplanes.
        I feel for the people going through this crappy winter and wet spring, but that is what living in the middle of the US is like.
        That experience is why I vowed to always live within 50 miles of an ocean or major body of saltwater.

      7. Give me my Southland any day. Our winters don’t get even half as bad as what the more northern latitudes get. It was 84 in my area today. Going down into the 60s and some rain for the weekend but warms back up Mon.

          “A Country Boy Can Survive”
          (originally by Hank Williams Jr.)

          The preacher man says it’s the end of time
          And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
          The interest is up and the stock market’s down
          And you only get mugged if you go downtown
          I live back in the woods, you see
          My woman and the kids, and the dogs, and me
          I got a shotgun, a rifle and a 4-wheel drive
          And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive
          I can plow a field all day long
          I can catch catfish from dusk ’til dawn
          We make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too
          Ain’t too many things these old boys can’t do
          We grow good old tomatoes and homemade wine
          And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

          Because you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
          ‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotguns
          And we say grace and we say Ma’am
          If you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn
          We came from the West Virginia coal mines
          And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
          And we can skin a buck, we can run a trotline
          And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

          I had a good friend in New York City
          He never called me by my name, just “hillbilly”
          My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
          And his taught him to be a businessman
          He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
          And I’d send him some homemade wine
          But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
          For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
          I’d love to spit some beech nut in that dude’s eyes, and shoot him with my old 45
          ‘Cause a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

          ‘Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
          ‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotguns
          And we say grace and we say Ma’am
          And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn
          We’re from North California and south Alabama
          And little towns all around this land
          And we can skin a buck, and run a trotline
          And a country boy can survive, country folks can survive

          A country boy can survive
          Country folks can survive

        • I can add layers of clothing to keep warm but I can only get naked and it’s still hot and humid as hell..Give me cold and snow any day over hot and humid.

      10. Cataclysmic “Bomb Cyclone” Wreaks Havoc On Central United States.
        Come on it is just another damn winter storm. We got them all the time in the 60′ and 70’s. This isn’t nothing new to me.

        • I know!!

          I grew up in Iowa. We had the most amazingly fun winters with snow and wind-driven snow drifts to the rooftops.

          We live in southern middle TN now and, like Renegade, I kinda enjoy the milder winters down here.

          But… sometimes… I really miss those snowy winters of my youth. There was a beauty in them.

      11. The ground in the midwest is frozen and the rivers are at flood stage. There is a lot of snow on the ground What’s needed for a disaster would be a rapid increase in temperatures in that area. It’s going to be expensive cleaning up after the floods. For most of us, it means higher food and fuel prices.
