Wow, not only does the radar show red, but the snow itself is red.

Now that's a blizzard...

Chicago just shut down Lake Shore Drive due to high winds blowing freezing Lake Michigan water onto the roadway.

The wind is just unreal, even the dogs don't want to go outside....

Ha ha. I lived in Belviqueer for a while near there. Don't miss it for a second. When I stepped off the plane for the job interview in Atlanta in Feburary many years ago, I decided then I was going to take the deal.

Here is a picture of the woods behind my house, taken five minutes ago.

Flash was suppressed, so I had to jack the lighting up with my editing software, because otherwise it is pitch dark.

Here is the same view taken WITH a flash, to capture all those marvelous flakes of white frozen stuff falling out of the sky, and show how dark it actually is (no edit made to lighting here).

Anyway that is what snow looks like folks.

Location = NW Ohio.

We are having thunder snow here, with lighting. Crazy shit.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 6:15:02 PM EDT
yep, same here. Thunder Snow rocks. Especially in a complete whiteout. Glad I don't have to go out tomorrow.

THE ONLY good thing is the wind. 20+ out of the NE is blowing all the snow away. Shouldn't have to dig tomorrow except around the house clearing the lee side drifts!

Heres ours in KC.

It was calm and then chaos back and forth. The wind really picks up about half way through the video.
