Thundersnow in April (Video)

Spring may be here, but that doesn’t mean that we still can’t get snow. We had a burst of heavy snow – in the form of graupel - move in at about 6:00 PM today, with strong winds. Conditions were perfect for thundersnow, so I grabbed my camera and stepped into the garage to hopefully get it on video. In the first few seconds, a blast of wind came at me head on and covered me with snow, soaking me. But right after that, I got my prize: lightning followed by thunder! Here’s the video.
