It’s Started Snowing — Thundersnowing — in Philadelphia
Try to stay calm people, but it’s snowing.
Yes, the Great Snow of Thanksgiving Eve 2014 is here. Though we’re only expecting around two inches of snow in the city, this is already an exciting snowstorm, because we’ve had some thundersnow.
Sheltered here at 30th Street Station from reported #Thundersnow in the region.

.@Me_iam_Erica Sure was! We have reports of Thunder Snow in northern Delaware, plus Chester and Montgomery counties.

"Thundersnow" is way more dramatic than "wintry mix". Just an opinion.

Thundersnow is so rare because the conditions for lighting generally only exist in summer. But occasionally we luck out and get the awesomely named event.
If you’re driving today, be careful out there on the roads. If you’re taking public transit of some sort, or flying, try to be nice to your fellow passengers. Whenever you get angry at traveling on this messy day, just remember: Thundersnow! It makes it all worth it.
