Yesterday we welcomed March with thunder snow. This is the phenomenon where you have thunder and lightening in a heavy snow storm. It is rare enough to get a good snow in the Atlanta area but this is even more uncommon. Saturday it was over 60 degrees so the ground was warm and not much of the snow stuck but it was still a beautiful site to see and it came down in huge heavy flakes for over 3 hours. It was strange this morning getting up and still seeing the deck covered with snow. I grew up in northern IN so I have seen plenty of snow in my lifetime and I really do prefer the GA weather to IN but it is nice to see this once in a while.
