Just like the Blizzard of ’93 you may have heard a rumble of thunder during the night….thunder and lightning have been reported around Chattooga County and Northwest Georgia during the snow storm.

According to the National Weather Service, one unique aspect of thundersnow is that the snowfall acts as an acoustic suppressor of the thunder. The thunder from a typical thunderstorm can be heard many miles away, while the thunder from thundersnow can usually only be heard within a two to three mile radius from the lightning.

There are on average only 6 accounts of "thundersnow" in the entire United States per year.
