I'm from North Carolina and I'm use to strange weather, but the strangest thing I've seen was in the snow belt of Ohio. I was working in a town called Madison. It was late fall two years ago. All within one day I saw rain, sleet, snow, hail, thunder and lighting. That was one strange day.
Another time about 5 years ago in the same area I was sleeping in a car (long story) and it started sleeting very hard. The ice was falling from the sky as hard as rain does in a hurricane and I've been through alot of hurricanes. The people that lived there was acting like it was no big deal, but I was freaking out.
