It’s from a series of eclectic samples of the collection written by employees of the Met Museum (this one by editor Dale Tucker)

Get a bit of butter heating in a frying pan
Run outside and cut some asparagus from the garden
Run inside before the butter goes more than slightly brown
Fry up the asparagus in butter until warmed and ever-so-slightly brown
Put on plate and squirt some fresh lemon or lime juice on them (also from the garden)
Eat straight away

Derecho comes from the Spanish word for “straight” (cf. “direct”) in contrast with a tornado which is a “twisted” wind. The word was first used in the American Meteorological Journal in 1888 by Gustavus Detlef Hinrichs in a paper describing the phenomenon and based on a significant derecho event that crossed Iowa on 31 July 1877.
A derecho ( /d??re?t?o?/; Spanish pronunciation: [de??et?o]; day-RAY-cho) is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line windstorm that is associated with a fast-moving band of severe thunderstorms. Generally, derechos are convection-induced and take on a bow echo form of squall line, forming in an area of divergence in the upper levels of the troposphere, within a region of low-level warm air advection and rich low-level moisture. They travel quickly in the direction of movement of their associated storms, similar to an outflow boundary (gust front), except that the wind is sustained and increases in strength behind the front, generally exceeding hurricane-force. A warm-weather phenomenon, derechos occur mostly in summer, especially during June and July in the Northern Hemisphere, within areas of moderately strong instability and moderately strong vertical wind shear. They may occur at any time of the year and occur as frequently at night as during the daylight hours.
