So tonight I discovered what a wet microburst is, also known as a rain bomb. Basically during a storm, a cold cloud will drop down suddenly and hit the earth with extremely high winds and a lot of precipitation. I never heard of it before, but it turns out I drove through one in Minnesota last year. There was some light showers for about 30-45 minutes of driving, and within a 10 second time span, our car was hit with extreme winds and rain so strong, I couldn't see anything through the windshield. I panicked and slowed down, then remembered I was on a highway and sped up blind. Eventually we got to a place to pull over with a half a dozen other cars. The whole event lasted maybe a minute and we had drove through a light shower for maybe 20 more minutes before the rain stopped entirely. I thought maybe Minnesota just had some crazy weather, but it turns out I just experienced a crazy rare weather event. It starts around 2:45 of this video.
