I don't live in humid weather and just don't see thunder/lightening storms unless I travel... I'm am the biggest wimp when it comes to Thunder/Lightening! !

Here is my snow experience so far... which isn't too bad

1- two days before blizzard
2- morning after blizzard
3- snow drift up to window sill and blocking door (my cousin can't open either door, but a neighbor is snow blowing the back door so we can get out )

healthi,

I checked out your utube link. Yup, pretty typical T-storm. Looks like you got some good snow pics to take back and share.

FYI snow chains give real good traction. I'm old enough to remember when studded snow tires were legal here in Wis. They did chew up the roads pretty good though and were banned back in '73 IIRC.

Awww... You can hide in the flash of lightning now can you?



Don't feel bad I hate lightning too... Been really close to it before... Close enough to smell the ozone and electrical tingle...

There is nothing like the feel and smell of a very close lightning strike.

Well my story quick...

I was sitting on my front porch with my step dad and the family dog and made the comment like any curious kid "Boy I would sure like to see lightning up close." Well I got my wish the house across the street from me got hit shortly after I said it. You could fell the heat generated, the loud boom, and smell the ozone from it. It scared us all so bad we ran in the house.

Come to find out it hit the TV antenna, blew up the TV, caught the living room on fire which the owner managed to put out.

So to this day I don't mind watching lightning storms but I can stand to sleep through them. I want to see it coming... (Like I can dodge it - Right...)

I never knew it thundered during a blizzard until a couple of nights ago. The trip is turning out to be very edumacating! :loki:
