What the hell was that?!

Oh my holy hell. Have any of you ever experienced a 'thunder snow?' Holy shit!!! There was just the BIGGEST flash of lightening, and then the BIGGEST clap of thunder. It is seriously thundering and lightening outside, while the wind is gusting at like 100 miles per hour (only a slight exaggeration) and it's snowing like a mo-fo! I started taking pictures and videos for you, and my camera crapped out on me. The is a HUGE snowdrift across my garage door right now, about halfway up the door. I hope I don't have to go anywhere anytime soon. Also, the snow is blowing so hard against my backdoor that it keeps seeping in under the door. I tried to open the door and stuff a towel between the doors, but that proved to be a big mistake. My door must have swelled from all the moisture because I couldn't get it to close. Stud finally just forced it closed with his brute strength, which is great, but that probably means we're trapped in our damn house!! The snow is blowing pretty hard against the front door, too. I went to see if I could get some video for you in the front of the house, since I have a street light right in front of my house, and you can really see the snow coming down. However, the entire storm door is covered in snow! I can't see out of it.

They say we can get up to 30 inches of snow during this storm. Luckily for me, my sister and I made a midnight run to Kmart the other day, and I got sucked into the $5 bin of videos at the check out. I bought 8 movies!! Guess what I'll be doing all day tomorrow on my SNOW DAY!!!

Oo, the 10:00 news is starting. Gotta go watch the blizzard coverage. It's supposed to be worse than the Blizzard of 1967!! (be sure to check out the pictures included in this article) My dad was at work when that blizzard hit, and it took him 14 hours to get home!

I just found this crazy video clip. My favorite part is the smoking reporter!!
