Snowmageddon - From Space

Do you folks remember Snowpocalyspe / Snowmageddon on Feb 3, 2011 ? If not, click here for a recap on that peach of a week when we here in North America were buried in the white stuff.

Anyways, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) released the following composite.

At first glance it looks like a graphic from a Discovery Channel programme about a distant ice age. But this astonishing picture shows the world as it is today - with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice. The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America was in the grip of a severe winter storm. 

Cool !!
