Historic Minature Bomb makes me want to tell my story

Recommended Posts

Hurricane force winds, blizzard conditions, epic weather that only lasted 2-3 hours across the Cape and Islands poured fear into the residents minds that the end of the world was indeed today.  The horror stories of my sister being caught in a movie theater with no power, my brother being caught in a microburst where the winds were unmeasurable, my dad caught in a wind storm that brought every tree you could think of into the road he was driving along, then of course my epic two plus hour bus ride from Bishop Stang in No. Dartmouth, MA where the weather was pedestrian during the early afternoon, soon began to turn to the more wilder side as the rain turned to sleet just as I was embarking on the worst afternoon of my life. 

 

Moments upon leaving Stang, the sleet turned to a wind driven snowfall where it started accumulating rapidly the further east I went.  Traffic along route 25 in Wareham and then route 3 along the Canal went towards a standstill traffic wise as the first sign of snow snarled up traffic badly.  My dad and siblings whoever was with him trying to pick me up at the bus stop was amazed at all the trees that fell down into the roads.  Luckily I didn't face the microburst as I was behind the surface low and tropopause fold, and now I am waiting to witness those winds again, maybe in a hurricane, but an extratropical low will be just fine as well.

I read a similar story in an accuWeather post from 8 years ago. That poster was also from Harwich, Cape Cod, MA and referred to it as such.

I didn't witness the winds, but I witnessed everything else.  The GFS and ETA actually showed this potential in the early morning runs because the NWS mentioned it in their discussion that the GFS and ETA had winds gusting past 80mph.
