I've been in Ukraine (Kiev) in the winter, and this winter was snowy and rainy but still I've never seen or listened there neither lightning nor thunders. What is the explanation for that?
I thought about two possibilities:
1) There are both, and I simply didn't see and listened. (It's strange because I had there windows and the sky was in front of me)
2) Indeed there are neither lightning nor thunder in this place. Then I would ask if there are another places like that.
