Thanks to NASA’s Image of the Day from their Earth Observatory web page we can visibly see what a “snowpocalypse” or “snowmageddon” looks like.  The true-color image of the heavy snow in the Washington D.C. area is from NASA’s Terra satellite and was captured on February 7, 2010.  Thanks to a retweet from for sharing this truly beautiful and awe inspiring image.  Take a look at NASA’s Earth Observatory page for other breath taking images.
