Last Piece of Cheese | Next Piece of Cheese

Shôsetsu...

Yes, it's 小雪, the season of "minor snow" or light snow. Snow was forecasted for two days ago, then today they said it would be next Monday... Eventually at 4:30pm it started with very light flakes and went on for less than a quarter of an hour. Back at home (I had the PT and went to the chemist) I put some salt in front of the house though the ground was quite dry, but you never know what night can bring. Less than an hour later, BOOOOM! a thunderstroke shook the house. I rushed to check in the veranda: the garden was all white! And in city lights I saw a thin but persistent snow falling, with cars back from work "running" like snails. That's when I shot the photo :o)
I told Paul about the thunder and the snow, he answered he never saw that together. Okay his memories are more than blurry now but yet. And my cleaning-lady called because her 12 old son and herself wondered all the same. Then our friend Annie from the next village... So, have you ever heard a thunderstorm (however short) with a snowfall together??

Well I, for one, have never heard of a snow thunderstorm (or a blizzard with thunder) :-) The snow looks beautiful, though! I'm a complete sucker for winter...

I hope this was real thunder, not an explosion... But I suppose we would have heard of it (no pun intended) further in news LOL

Thanks Susan, but that's nothing like yours. And I realized later I was on "fluorescent light" per chance; I like the result :o)

You had thundersnow! It's a very rare phenomenon but it does happen. We've seen it here in Virginia a few times. :)
