Here Comes the Snowpocalypse From Space

Here it is. They can't stop laughing at New Yorkers in Minnesota, where they have these "snowmagedons" every other day during winter—but show this picture from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite to the former, and we will run away, screaming and looting supermarkets:

The satellite image, captured at 9:01 a.m. EST, shows clouds associated with the western frontal system stretching from Canada through the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, into the Gulf of Mexico. The comma-shaped low pressure system located over the Atlantic, east of Virginia, is forecast to merge with the front and create a powerful nor'easter. The National Weather Service expects the merged storm to move northeast and drop between two to three feet of snow in parts of New England.
