May or December-cold air smacking up against warm gulf air produces-thunder. Lots of loud, crackling thunder. Temps aloft below 32 produce ice or snow. Mix the two, and you have the Okie phenom-Thundersnow! Or to be entirely accurate, Thunderslush.
I've heard the odd clap of thunder durng a Texas snowstorm-but it's like a bit of gas escaping-just every so often. We've had consistent Thundersnow (or slush) since early this morning.
Why this amuses me so I have no idea....but remember the theme from Underdog? Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh (switch to baritone voice) UNDERDOG? WEll, for some reason I've been humming that and substituting "THUNDERSNOW" for quite some time now. Not constantly, just every time the mood strikes which is frequently right after a thunder clap....or THUNDERCLAP.
It is my sign from above, stay in, stay warm.
Oh, you know what else work with that song....duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh HIBERNATE!!!!
