Blizzard 2016 Seen By NASA Satellite From Space

Blizzard 2016 Seen By NASA Satellite From Space

After the truly epic record breaking snowstorm on January 23 2016, we had a clear sky to help blind us with light during the big dig cleanup. The storm fondly labeled Blizzard 2016, Snowzilla, and Jonus left its mark on the landscape and it was visible from space. Over 2 feet of snow will do that! I scanned the EOSDIS NASA Worldview for the images from the Aqua Satellite MODIS views to show of our historic event. Below is the regional view compared to the snow depth map from NOAA. Then scroll down for closer views and you can spot the landscape influence. Faith in the Flakes.

Compare this to the Snow Depth Map from Sunday morning January 24 2016:

The wide range of places over 20 inches (dark blue) is astounding!

Look closely and you can make out the terrain, parts of the Susquehanna River that are frozen, and area reservoirs.
