Thunder Snow

There’s no school here again today–It’s a SNOW DAY! The storm that hit the Seattle area yesterday missed us and laid down all it’s snow to the north and south of us. But the forecast had been so formidable that all the districts canceled classes yesterday, and we had the day off even as the expected snow went elsewhere. This morning was a different story. The snow arrived at the beginning of rush hour and announced itself with thunder and lightening. I’d never heard the term “thunder snow” until this morning when a weathercaster so aptly described what was going on outside our window! It completely blanketed the area, not leaving out any neighborhood or school district. So it’s another day with schools closed, and this teacher has actually been able to get almost all her Christmas presents wrapped early for a change!

    Wow – I missed the thunder and lightning! I certainly found the snow though! I’m on the other side of 405 from you. My parents live about two blocks away, and my Mom stopped by today to see if my son (will be two on Christmas Eve) and I wanted to walk down to see Great-Grandma. It is about a 1/2 mile away and there is one big hill. The snow is significantly deeper than it was last night, and it took us about 20 minutes to get there, and 40 to get back! πŸ™‚

    Hope you are able to enjoy the snow.

    I love that picture πŸ˜€ I bet it’s cold as all heck out there! It’s gorgeous though. Thunder Snow..sounds cool, but eerie at the same time.

    Wendi B, I was up early waiting for my phone call telling me there was no school, when we heard the thunder. We couldn’t believe it! How nice that you live within walking distance of your parents and grandma! I would be thrilled to live within walking distance of our Grandboy!

    Chris, my poor frozen but happy Buddha that sits on my deck! This morning it’s cold as the dickens out there, but there’s no school again, and my husband is staying home from work and off those wickedly icy hills!! And “thunder snow” is totally weird!
