Watch The Northeastern U.S. Get Buried In Snow–From Space
Wait, is that a storm front or 700-foot-tall ice wall?
Another storm pummeled New England over the weekend, generating more snowfall, misery, and incredible photos from space.
NASA’s Suomi NPP satellite took this image of the northeastern U.S. on February 13, 2015. It was a surprisingly clear day for the region and revealed weeks of abusive winter weather.
Some cities have been harder-hit than others. Boston has seen 58 inches of snow this month alone, and about 96 inches all winter long–enough to make the city consider dumping its frosty quandary into the harbor. Not helping matters is a bitter a cold snap that’s touched states as far south as Georgia.
A lot can happen in a month. See for yourself in the 30-day animation below, or peruse the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s View Data Exploration Tool, which publishes daily satellite images of the entire planet.
