Default Hurricane in winter with thunder? WTF?

Just took a look out the window saw a huge thunderbolt. It's minus 4 dregree c. and the beginning of January. Recived a warning about a hurricane force storm, it's gonna hit within the next hour or two. It's 11 pm at night here now, never anything I've seen here in Denmark. This is creepy. Guess it's time to go outside and see what needs strapping down, check the generator, buckle down and have a beer. Looks like a long night.
