What odd weather was noticed in the Hudson Valley?

According to First Due Weather, loud thunder and bright lightning was spotted in the Orange County area last night. What? I love thunder and lightning because it reminds me of summer time and I always think it's a bit spooky when it rolls in. However, we usually don't get thunder and lightning during the winter season and it can be pretty rare when it happens. One of the things I miss about the summer season is a good thunderstorm, but it seems like it happened.

Did Hudson Valley residents notice the stormy weather?

Many did and they wrote on the Facebook page and shared what they noticed:

  • Tanya- "It shook my windows here in Monroe"

  • Christopher- "My house in Goshen actually shook at 6:20"
  • Nicole- "It was loud enough to make my dog speed walk home with his tail between his legs"
