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

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.

(The image was captured at 10:45 a.m. yesterday)
