Word of the Day 01/11/16 Microburst

A million apologies for not having a Word of the Day yesterday! I thought I had Monday and Tuesday scheduled like I usually do when I do a week in advance.

===+++===

Microburst (noun)
microburst [mahy-kruh-burst]


noun, Meteorology.
1. an intense, localized downdraft of air that spreads on the ground, causing rapid changes in wind direction and speed; a localized downburst.

Origin: 1980-85; micro- + burst

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
