Storm 12

It is COLD outside. The air is heavy with water vapor. The coastal surf is up and generating warnings. A storm of the Pacific is arriving, but is expected to arrive weak. At its core is a fistful of energy spinning furiously and moving east towards us like a ramrod. To the east, on the other side of the Sierras, an outer wave of another huge storm is heading west, the direction storms rarely are seen moving. Only a very powerful storm could generate such a westward moving wave. The two waves, one from the Pacific, one from Great Plains, are running into each other, squishing our poor storm’s energy out like a penny on the railroad track.
