Snow Covering the Northeastern USA

USA - January 15th, 2011

Snow covers much of the terrain of the northeastern United States of America. Here, it can be seen spreading across the states of New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Notable places dusted in snow include New York’s Long Island (lower left corner) and Cape Cod (hook-shaped peninsula to the right).

Although this image is from mid-January, this week anotherĀ  storm caught much of the East Coast off guard with its ferocity, tearing through with lightning, thunder and mounds of wet snow, leaving nearly 300,000 customers around the nation’s capital without power Thursday and forcing people to shovel out all over again.

The forecast had called for up to a foot of snow in parts of the region but the storm brought far more in spots. New York got 19 inches, Philadelphia 17. Snow totals in the Washington area ranged from about 3 inches to nearly 7.
