Engulfed in snow

Posted: 05 Mar 2010 06:14 AM

Besides feeling the warm sunshine, a benefit of having clear skies during the daytime are the cool images satellites can take of our snow covered landscape. An Aqua MODIS satellite image from Thursday is featured showing the entire state covered in snow. The NASA website has images at a higher resolution where you can easily see cities and roads. Warmer weather and rain this weekend will eat away at this snow field with some flooding impacts expected early next week.

Good = 66
Bad = 17
