    Good thing we have a Jeep.
    Something surreal about thunder/lightning/45mph wind gust...and it is snowing.
    There was a period of about 5 minutes where in 47 years I had never seen snowflakes that big before. I swear some were near the diameter of a softball...not saying the size of a softball (obviously) but about that big around.

    For the first time in 34 years our local newspaper is not publishing a newspaper due to the blizzard.
