Ok..I know I'm being a bit of a copycat but this is just incredible.
Never in my whole life had I ever experienced thunder and lightning during a SNOW storm but now twice in the span of 7 days, that's exactly what I've seen. It's crazy. There is a serious storm happening outside my window today. It looks almost like a sort of hail/snow that's falling - in buckets - from the sky. It's been going steadily for almost an hour and is nearly what I'd call whiteout conditions. According to my Firefox weather updater, the wind is travelling at 8m/s in Toronto, although, I'm pretty sure that downtown here around the buildings it's whipping much faster. And then, just now, a blinding flash of light followed quickly but rumbling, rolling thunder. Really, it's something quite remarkable.
According to this website, there really is a weather phenomenon called Thundersnow and according to David Schultz, only 0.07 percent of recorded snowstorms include thunder and among recorded thunderstorms, only 1.3 percent of these storms in cool seasons feature snow.
In other news, it has also been estimated that approximately 75% of all Canadians think that talking about the weather is interesting.
Talk to you soon,
