THUNDERSNOW!

Our weather investigations this week took us to THUNDERstorms and SNOW avalanches.  So it was fitting that a few days ago we were graced by the incredible event that is thundersnow.  I'm not sure if there's anything cooler than thundersnow.

Seriously.  Is there?

Anyway, here we are on Tuesday using our knowledge and know-how to create mini avalanches.
After further review and extended discussion, we came to the conclusion that we did in fact create mini powder avalanches, much like one that would start at the tip of a mountain.


Thursday was convenient to say the least.  Rare February thunderstorms rolled through our area, making the discussion about storms applicable and real.  We also enjoyed the following video...because who didn't want their parents when that late night storm shook the house?

Next up; tsunamis, whirlpools, and the beautiful Aurora Borealis...
