Jim Cantore from TWC was caught off guard when lightning lit up the sky during an intense snowstorm.

METEOR??? Maybe not!? I am lacking eye-witness reports of anyone actually seeing anything, only hearsay; NO videos?. We need video of this event; email videos please LunarMeteoriteHunter@gmail.com
Was this Winter Lightning/Thunder only?; this is now my best guess.
