Here's a print screen from my weather station's computer early this morning. I've never seen this low of atmospheric pressure here in Kansas before. Shortly after midnight the pressure hit a low of 28.08 InHg. :oldsurprised:

It's very weird scrolling through the hours before the storm formed, as it looked to me like total randomness.
But within something like 6 hours, it was almost perfectly formed.
And it was predicted two days earlier.
No wonder i had two days of strong southerly wind.

I'm sure everyone by now has seen the video of the semi being blown over in Amarillo TX, and the train derailment near Logan NM.
I'm not sure if I've ever heard of a train being derailed by a windstorm.
(google google google)
Oh good grief. Wiki has an entry for everything: List of wind-related railway accidents

Already pulled my barograph chart and put it in "the scrapbook" for Colorado. Don't know that it's the extreme, but impressive, all the same.

no damage, just blew some loose stuff around the yard.

Trees budding here, daffodils galore , even some of my bermuda grass seed popping up. How about up your way ?

I'm seeing signs of the trees budding. Other than that, nothings close to being green.

Wow ! You certainly had a 'Weather Bomb' !!
That would have given a very nasty storm surge on the coast, ~1 cm per mbar plus wind push.

IIRC, something like this has been blamed for the Bristol Channel floods of 1607

{ Take Care when researching this, as both 'old' and 'new' calendars were in use, and a later storm munged some evidence... }
