Well, it’s getting to be even stranger around here lately with the weather.  Old Man Winter seems to be even more confused, since yesterday we had wind, rain, sleet, snow and…lightning and thunder!  I looked it up and they call it Thundersnow!  There is a scientific climate reason for it and it did happen because I witnessed it!  I saw the lightning and heard thunder as the snow fell from the sky in the early afternoon.

At first, I thought – what was that? as I glimpsed out of the corner of my eye a flash of light outside.  Then, I heard a rumbling…was that thunder?   So I looked out the window at the falling snow and saw the flash of lightning and then heard the thunder roar and it was confirmed!  Later, on the news, I saw the word Thundersnow and voila!  I added another word to my climate vocabulary!

Have you ever experienced thundersnow?  Have you been having crazy weather lately?

Stay warm, stay safe and enjoy the wild weather ride!  Keep shining your heartlights!

Shine On!

  1. We have had crazy weather also. No thunder snow but we got up to 80 degrees already once this year and have had a few days in the 70s. This morning we woke up to snow scattered on the ground and covering roofs! Crazy!

  2. I heard the thunder Yvonne, but no lightening. It was a pretty and spectacular snow storm yesterday. I hope things have settled back to normal and you are warm and safe. 💛

  3. Thunder snow is natures way of keeping us on our toes. The weather is changing and hasn’t made up it’s mind yet. I love interesting weather. All summer long, I long for autumn and winter. I always wish winter would last a wee bit longer. I’m the oddball that loves winter but we don’t have east coast weather. Oregon is a bit more gentle with us. Have a great weekend.

    • Thanks Marlene! I hope you have a lovely weekend as well! Oregon weather sounds lovely. I love winter too – well, I love each season for different reasons. I love the hunkerdown, snowed in aspect of winter where we can hibernate at home for a bit longer. Thanks for stopping by. xo
