VIDEO: Watch Jim Cantore's Insane Reaction to Thundersnow in Massachusetts

He might be the only person who's excited about snow

Liz Raftery

Jim Cantore is probably the only person in Massachusetts who's excited about anything having to do with snow.

While covering the region's latest blizzard Sunday for The Weather Channel, the meteorologist witnessed the weather phenomenon known as "thundersnow" - and practically had a heart attack live on the air. (Watch the video below.)

"Yes! Yes! Yes!" Cantore exclaimed on camera. "We got it, baby!"

This was the fifth time Cantore had captured thundersnow on film, and he made note of the fact by screaming "That's number five, baby!"

Thundersnow is akin to a normal thunderstorm, except snow is the primary form of precipitation, rather than rain.

After the weekend storm, February 2015 officially became the snowiest month in Boston ever, with 45.5 inches. The city has seen 89.2 inches of snow so far this year, making it the third snowiest winter on record, CNN reports.
