Thursday (2/16) we had a weather mix from hell up here in Michigan.
My sister in East Hampton NY reported only 9"s of snow from that Nor’easter..
Here on Thursday in my Neck of the woods, I spent the day under an Ice Storm Warning.. Had 1.48 inches of rain fall with temps at 32 degrees. Luckily at my home, it was enough rain falling to keep any serious damage from happening. 10 miles north of here was a different story… My radio never stopped toneing out fire departments for down wires, trees, electrical fires and cars flipping over. 20 miles north of here had over a foot of snow. Then 50 miles south of here (if even that far) in Kalamazoo had 60 degrees for daytime highs, along with a tornado watch… Oh ya, we had a decent Thunder Snow move thru also… They called it a thundersnow, but it happened during the ice storm… Massive strikes of lightnin all around us..
Here’s the lightning loop from our local TV station (www.woodtv.com):
