Our own Dr. Jay Shafer was a guest on Vermont Public Radio's Vermont Edition on January 22, 2018, along with the Vermont State Climatologist Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux. They answered listener questions about winter weather phenomena in Vermont, including:

Why does it get quieter when it snows?
Can there actually be thunder and lightning during a snow storm?
How can smog and flooding happen in the dead of winter?
