Historic Snowstorm Blankets New England

Last weekend's snowstorm in New England brought historic snowfall to many communities in New England with snow totals in excess of 2 feet. Blizzard warnings along the coast were put in place ahead of high winds that reached 83 miles per hour in Cuttyhunk, MA, 82 in Westport, CT, and 81 in Mount Washington, ME. This image shows the snow on the ground as taken by the NOAA/NASA Suomi NPP satellite's VIIRS instrument around 1825Z on Sunday February 10, 2013 after the storm headed out into the Atlantic. For comparison an image showing the land on January 27, 2013, can be found here.
