We got thunder snow today. Have you ever had that? It’s where there’s lightning and thunder while it’s snowing. It’s apparently pretty rare and I’ve only seen it once before, in 2011, during the “Snowpocalypse.” Here’s an article about what it is and how it happened in Chicago. I thought it made excellent fodder for haiku, and so I shall begin:
Snow, snow, snow, snow, BOOM.
Flashing light behind the flakes.
Rumble, rumble, BANG.
Snow falls silent, soft
Crashing noises juxtapose
stillness in my heart.
Confusion sets in
Storm? Yes. Snow? Yes. Thunder? Check.
Thunder snow is here.
Have you ever seen thunder snow? Tell me about it.
