The Thunderslushpocalypse of 2011!

We are just finishing up the first major snow of the season.  We only ended up with 7 - 8 inches of heavy snow on our deck, but that amount has wreaked havoc on the roads, with gridlock and all freeway lanes closed.  My son-in-law has been on the road for 6 hours and is only half way home (normally, a 1 hour trip)!  It was also thunder snow so we had numerous power glitches.  Lightning flashes look eerie when the snow is coming down at 1.5 - 2 inches/hour.

OK, I know you want a snow girl...

The poor tree screamed for help so she went out to shake it off.
