January 7, 2014: Beautiful snowy NE North America from space



Earth from space images are an IotD tradition...

On January 3, NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the northeast United States, just as a massive snowstorm was leaving.

You may go to NASA and look at the higher resolution images if you like. You may waste a lot of time doing it! Of course it will be of more interest to those of us who are in the shot.

And with the highest resolution image, which is 10 MB in size, I could zoom in and isolate many awesome things. Such as how the mighty Susquehanna River didn't freeze, and shoved its way through the Appalachians, as it has for as long as humans have known:

I love how well you can see those mountains.

I used to drive up route 81 through those mountains in my grandfather's Buick. It had a radio, but no tape deck. You'd have to alternate between two different radio stations depending on if you were going up the side of a mountain and could pick up the station behind you, or were going down the other side and had to find a station in front of you. And the hills are all so close together, you had to change the station frequently.

Great picture.

Now today, after 36 hours of temperatures under 10 degrees F (-10 C), the mighty Susquehanna River looks like this at the Rt. 30 bridge:



This position is 2/3rds of the way down on the Susquehanna image posted above. The river is a half-mile wide at this point, and hard to freeze over, but the mighty polar vortex of 2014 has just about done it.

(The puff of steam in the middle of the picture is the still-operating Three Mile Island nuclear power plant. There were two reactors at TMI. TMI-2 was the failed one; TMI-1 is still generating electricity.)

And the Delaware River has frozen over, where Washington crossed on Christmas Eve, to turn the tide of the revolution.

Washington would have crossed sooner but there was a huge traffic tie up from Fort Lee.
