Anybody ever heard big thunder claps or seen lightning in the middle of a snowstorm? Strange stuff, getting hit hard right now.

I've seen it from time to time. Very cool with the light reflecting off the white stuff.

Haven't see that, but yesterday was pretty weird.

I rode a 2006 Rocket III to work for a meeting at our Harley dealership at 8:30am. (My speed triple is receiving some T&C from our techs) Cold and wet, but fine. When the meeting was over at 10am - whoa!

Three inches of snow! The Rocket made the 1.2 mile trip to our Triumph dealership (where my office is) in a van. I was going to ride it - very carefully - but the owner (who does own the Rocket, it must be said) put his foot down. Probably a good thing.

Also getting hit hard right now, I live in St. Paul, MN and we've got about 10 inches of snow in the last 10 hours, supposed to get another 3-6 inches tomorrow. There have been a few lightning flashes tonight, which is pretty cool. Apparently in Duluth, they have 60 mph winds and the lightning is going crazy up there. Complete blizzard. Thank god for 4WD. :cool:
