"bomb cyclone" in central US...

I'm reading reports of this, and it's -- unusual.

They recorded pressure drops and wind speeds consistent with Category-2 hurricanes.  In central US.  In other words, we're not just getting hurricanes from the atlantic corridor -- now we're growing hurricanes right here, over dry land.

This is a new development.

It was something else. Thought my little old house was going to blow over. I hunkered down with my fur people. About 6-8hrs of snow coming down sideways...and then it was clear and peaceful.

We didn't have it as bad here in Denver as they did on the plains though.

Never experienced anything quite like it.

I don't know where you live, but here in upstate New York, right off Lake Ontario, we have had several of these weather systems. They are a subset of what has always been called blizzards.  Up here we have an alternate heat source, in case power goes out from downed power lines for an extended period of time.  Many have back up generators.  Everyone should have plenty of food and perhaps a camping type propane stove to prepare hot meals (and coffee).  Don't forget flashlights.  The storm is usually gone pretty quickly, but the aftermath may last a long time, depending upon how long it takes to get the power lines back up.

It's not like a tornado. https://www.popsci.com/bomb-cyclone

BTW, my wife's great, great grandfather hitched up his wagon with two horses and headed into town on a clear winter's day and one of these freak blizzard's came in off the lake.  He apparently released the horses and one came back to the barn.  He was found frozen to death along with one of the horses.  Back in the day, they didn't call them "Bomb Cyclones" they just called them a big storm or a blizzard.  They didn't have anything to forecast them other than a Farmer's Almanac and possibly a weather beetle.

The other night, I needed to fill up gas. When I pulled into the gas station, the winds were so strong that I couldn't get out of the car; the wind kept pushing my door shut. I literally had to open the door by pushing it it open with my legs. Weird thing, it wasn't even raining at the time.
