The No-mageddon D.C. snow hole from space

By Jason Samenow

We showed you a crude illustration of eastern U.S. snow cover Monday after the "Beach Blizzard, Beltway Bust." Now see it from space in high-res, courtesy NASA's Terra satellite. Where there's no white, there's no snow. Some of the thicker whites on the north and northwest portions of the image show where cloud cover is obscuring the satellite's view of the ground.

For the record, I take high exception to my product being labeled a "crude illustration". Other than that, I freaking love MODIS!

It doesn't make me mad.....just perplexed once again by DC metro area winter weather weirdness.
