We have Thundersnow!

Just saw the second flash of light and loud thunder. Snowing so hard I can't see across the street. Street lights just came on. Been snowing since about 5:15 am. I am in Topeka, Ks. The news reports say we are "on track for 8-12 inches".

5. I just read these "Q" tips on the weather page for Kansas:

Gov. Brownback has closed state government Thursday morning through Friday morning.
Winter Storm Q has begun dumping snow across Kansas as it brings needed moisture to parched farmland.
Snowfall rates of an inch an hour are possible in north central Kansas.
The heaviest snowfall will extend from southwest to north central Kansas, where accumulations of more than 16 inches are forecast.
Q is expected to dump up to 10 inches of snow and sleet in the Kansas City area, possibly the region's biggest winter event in two years.


Down here in the warmer south, we get another line of thunderstorms.
NE Texas has reported 7 mild tornadoes so far from ..."Q"

12. SW corner of Alabama, 90 miles due north of Pensacola.

Quiet little town, some call it boring, I call it tremendously peaceful.

7. Wow that storm is moving fast!

Yesterday morning about this time, we started getting rain. By early afternoon, we were having thundering and snow in Phoenix.

Nothing really stuck here, just enough for a few quick snowballs & mini snowmen.

Stay safe.

9. Southeast Iowa: Scheduled for us @ 6PM

stocking up the wood for a fire and got a pot of chili on.
Preparation for storms is essential.
(we are retired so we can enjoy the snowfall without too much worry)
