With the scant amount of snowfall we get at one time(1-2"), I don't think I could get that amount to stick in a core
Slide a card under the end of the tube?

The Highlight of the storm was witnessing some rare "thundersnow"  which is convective snow showers.
Hmmm, round here almost all the snow that falls is from wintry convection ... snow falling from frontal cloud is very rare & almost always turns to sleet then rain in a very short time.

Tyler, you done a very good dob with those images. The two images really show how bright that lightning was. I can imagine what it was like being there. Thundersnow is not easy to catch but you done it!.  Like the car trail in the first, the second looks very festive. Sorry to hear the forecast was a bummer but at least you got some snow and sleet with lightning!  Smiley

I seen thundersnow last Jan but I have yet to get an image of it.

Thanks for the updates
