    It looks like the high winds are across much of the US, from Colorado Eastward. There is snow and rain and some places are losing power as the low pressure area moves through. 4 inches of snow fell in 3 hours Wednesday where I live in Northwest Wisconsin. That makes this snow season the most on record with over 90 inches. The wind is blowing hard but it isn't snowing at the moment.

    Woke up this morning to thunder snow and 6.5 more inches of it bringing the total to 10 so far. The lightning It's difficult to tell with the high wind gusts blowing it all over. The sky was that yellow color that you get before a summer thunderstorm. It might have been from dust carried from the West by the winds. It lightened up some now. The wind speed is down to a constant speed of 26 mph mph from 35 mph but still gusting over 55 mph at times.

    The tornado drill scheduled for today has been canceled because of the weather.

    My old buddies from Denver are laughing at the retarded coverage of these Spring storms this year.

    There's always been these late spring heavy snow storms. Usually the worst of the snow season. I had to drive through one about 9 years on my way from Denver to Dallas.... some of the worst conditions I've had to drive through.... the snow had melted initially due to the warmer spring weather, then froze about an inch thick overnight. Vehicles off the road everywhere.

    Really... "Bomb Cyclone". The news media is so dumb with the alarmist coverage. I've never heard of these storms being called a Bomb Cyclone before.

    Look at this fucking moron....

    4 inches was just the Wednesday afternoon appetizer. We got at least 7 more overnight. The winds were high enough to blow empty semi trailers over. It was a good day to be heading East in the morning but the wind switched to out of the North around noon. Minnesota got more snow but the wind was all the way from Colorado headed East.

    The technical term is explosive cyclogenesis which is a fairly rare condition when the air pressure drops suddenly. It's become more common in the last few years and the areas involved have gotten larger due to the warmer air carrying more moisture.

    Thunder snow? That sounds like the start of the apocalypse.

    I don't think I have ever seen lightning/thunder in a snow storm.
