Snowstorm Imaged by NASA's Terra Satellite

Snowstorm Hits the U.S. East Coast, NASA Earth Observatory

"A powerful nor'easter ensured that the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States were cloaked in white on the first day of Northern Hemisphere winter in 2009. This image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite shows the Chesapeake Bay area on December 21."

Marc's note: A great image from the Terra satellite. Normally Keith would be somewhere in that picture but alas he too has fallen victim to this storm as he tried to return from Denver to his home in Virginia yesterday. And none too please he was with United Airlines. Last word was that he had made it to Fayetteville, Arkansas and they might be sending him onward to Chicago then perhaps back to Dulles today. But you never know...

Marc's update: Keith made it to Chicago and should be headed to DCA sometime today.

Marc's update: Keith made it back.
