Officially Weird, at least in my book....

Okay, I know we now live on the prairie, which has strange weather almost by definition, but it's getting even stranger these days.

We had thundersnow a few days before Christmas.

About a week ago we had a big thunderstorm, complete with severe weather warnings, blow through at night with temperatures around 34 degrees F.

And at 3 a.m. last night we had another big thunderstorm with an absolutely impressive display of lightning and thunder. The temperature was 21 degrees F. and the storm was accompanied by freezing rain and ice pellets/hail that coated the ground.

If we're having this many thunderstorms in the middle of winter, what is this spring going to be like?
