Saturday there was a rare occurance - thunder snow. It's very odd to hear thunder & see lightning while it's snowing. Pretty cool though. The snow was coming down fast & furious for most of the day Saturday in Lawrence. There were blizzard-like conditions. I was glad to be safe & warm at my parents' house. It was another brilliant weather forecast - some rain & a trace to 1" of snow - nothing much. We got about 5" and it was drifting from the gusting wind. You can see the pile up on my parents deck and on my car.
