It's snowfall during thunderstorms, or thunder/lightning during snowfall. It has yet to occur in my time here (1.5 years).

I've heard of it happening in Tucumcari, NM and Eastern Pennsylvania as well.

Cabolissa, not one of my fave things about this area is the thunder. We get it every year and it feels like its hitting in your back yard. Plus it rains everyday about 4 pm or so. Around Aug/Sept. Doesnt rain long though.

Fun

Seeing lightning while it's snowing would be really cool!

I have lived here for 36 years - often you will hear thunder in the winter - and sometimes in the summer. Last night was the most unusual event I have experienced since 1986. 1986 was mid day and was huge running down broadway from downstown. Showing my age. I had not seen anything like it since. Like I said last night was very unusual. Probably will not happen for another 30+ years.

Weather can change on a dime in the mountains. One minute 85 degrees with the sun out. The next, 50 degrees and hail.
