bomb cyclone brings cold
cherry blossoms dressed in snow
waiting for a thaw
This is my response to Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #80: cherry blossom.
From a feature on NPR regarding the current bomb cyclone:
“The meteorological term ‘bomb cyclone’ refers to a storm that intensifies very quickly through a process called bombogenesis, in which barometric pressure falls by at least 24 millibars over 24 hours. That’s what happened in parts of the central U.S., where just one day before blizzard conditions hit, many areas such as Denver were enjoying sunny weather in the 50s and 60s.”
