A Weather Bomb

We have had some bad weather over the past couple of days. Tuesday being the worst, with winds gusting up to 100km an hour. This type of strom is called a Weather Bomb!

Weather bombs are the most severe of all winter storms. Weather bombs are known for dumping heavy amounts of rain and snow, producing hurricane-force winds, and creating high surfs that cause severe beach erosion and coastal flooding.

The wind caused waves on Lake Superior to reach over 8 feet tall. This freighter weathered out the storm in our harbour. You should be able to see the Sleeping Giant directly behind the boat.

It's hard for little 10lb dogs to go outside in such wind. Mom was afraid that we would get swept away. She carried us outside with our leashes attached and put us in a sheltered area to do our business. We are happy to report that we did not have one accident in the house.

Love Ruby & Penny

My Darling Wives, I was worried about you during this bad weather period. It is good that your mom kept your walkin strings on you. Of course.. that wind came right here to my house... and you COULD have ridden it down here fur a visit. hehehe
I am soooooo happy that you and Mom J. were safe.
You did a super job of telling us about this strange weather thingy.

In my state it caused 9 tornadoes and lots of high wind.
My yard is full of sticks and stuff... sorta like ... A BOMB WENT OFF .
I LOVE you. Licks and Wags from your lonely hubby.

Ruby and Penny, we are just so glad everyone is safe. Weather bombs sound horrible and very scary. We had lots of wind here and flash floods and a few tornados close by. We've never heard of a weather bomb..that sounds really bad. Stay safe! Lots of love, Holly and mom

We had never heard the term Weather Bomb until this week. That was one massive and scary storm. We are so happy that you have such a kind mom to help you two get outside safely. Hope the weekend is calm and enjoyable.
