Have you ever heard of thunder snow or thunder lightening?  Me neither, until today.  And then I experienced it while walking the dog…she jumped a mile and freaked!  This is the scene outside my apartment building; we are supposed to get 4-8 inches. 

I thank my photography class for this photo. I put the camera on manual, set the aperture, jacked my ISO up and adjusted my shutter speed until I could get the shot, just like Okello (the instructor) said and it worked great!
