I'm no meteorologist, but I'm pretty sure there's not supposed to be lightning during a snowstorm.

When I was walking back from moving my car so I don't get towed during the snow emergency, if there even is one, I saw something cool. A bunch of snow fell from a tree, right in front of a street lamp. The lamp flickered as the snow fell. I think it's because the light reflected off of the snow, and made the light sensor think that it was daytime. As I passed the light, it was dim and glowing faintly. I assumed that it took a while to warm up after being turned off.

Anyway, after I passed the light, I saw a really bright flash, like from a camera. I thought that the lamp had burned out with the flash as its final glory, but when I turned around to look at it, I heard thunder! While it was snowing!

Either that or something nearby 'sploded.
