Blizzard of 2015

Posted on Jan 30, 2015

I love this very recent Throwback Thursday image from three days ago taken in space of the Blizzard of 2015 via NOAA/NASA. Having the state lines drawn in makes it very easy to identify locations based on night lights – for those in Chautauqua County you can see Jamestown and Dunkirk/Fredonia quite clearly along with other nearby cities. Isn’t it astonishing how bright New York City is even while covered by clouds? While some of us were under the comma head and experiencing strong wind and snow (like me!) nearly everyone in the eastern half of the country and much of the Atlantic felt weather conditions of varying sorts all due to the Blizzard. It’s surreal how enormous these low pressure systems can be.
