Thunder and lightning with a snowstorm and ice pellets
Weird, huh? I don't think I've seen lightning or heard thunder in a winter snowstorm before.

NYC is having another major snowstorm. We'll probably end up with another 12 inches of the stuff.

Florida is a weird place but at least it doesn't have snow.

This happens occasionally in DC. But not for many years.

2. We've had it here before in NE OK, but
it doesn't happen often. It's kinda cool, actually, because it happens so rarely. :hi:

7. Some distant thunder, but it is snowing like a motherfucker here in SE PA...
looks like we got 4" since early this evening, and it is supposed to continue till at least midnight, but who knows. It looks really pretty, and my dog loves it.

9. Oh, and when it started snowing it was freaking awesome
flakes were at LEAST 4 inches wide. I had two old timers tell me that it was the largest they'd ever seen.. and they were o.l.d. timers P

Now me, I gazed out the window and considered the validity of a town in range of me being a nuclear target. After that... I think I read the entire internet.
