What Bomb #cyclones Teach Us?

Views: 73
A Polar Vortex, coupled with a
. . . Bomb Cyclone created a wicked nor’easter.
It was so cold that:
. . . . . . Niagara Falls froze,
. . . . . . it snowed in Florida,
. . . . . . Coal stacks were frozen,
. . . . . . diesel generators simply couldn’t function in such low temperatures,
. . . . . . Gas choked up - its pipelines couldn’t keep up with demand, and
. . . . . . prices skyrocketed.

The first problem, with such widespread cold, is a
. . . spike in electric-heating, and
. . . gas-heating demand,
. . . since everyone is turning up the heat, and
. . . it takes a lot more energy,
. . . to keep us at comfortable temperatures.
The area affected was also much larger than normal.
. . . Florida doesn’t normally turn up the heat.
