I love the silence that snow brings with it.
We are having what the news stations are calling Thunder Snow. Like thunder storms but with snow instead of rain. I had never heard of it. Yet the sound woke me at 5:20-ish. In our Capital, Columbia, they had lightening with it. Freaky.
I have about 1-1.5 inches of snow and when I awoke to check it out, I heard freezing rain coming down on top of it.
I will add more pictures in another hour or so when my world lightens here in Ballentine, SC : )
