Watch the Big East Coast Snow Storm from the GOES-13 Satellite

One of the great perks of working where I do is having the ability to tap into the latest satellite imagery. So, I grabbed this animation today from the NASA GOES Satellite Project of last night's and today's big East Coast Snowstorm. (In the beginning there's interference (there was SNOW on the receiving satellite dish that one of our scientists cleared off , improving the signal).
This animation of GOES-13 satellite data runs from January 25 at 1431 UTC (9:31 a.m. EST) to 1431 UTC (9:31 a.m. EST) on January 27, 2011. It shows the movement of the low pressure area moving from west to east over the last 2 days.
Also visible is the snow on the ground that it left behind in the mid-Atlantic. The animation was created  by the NASA GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The GOES series of satellites are operated by NOAA. CREDIT: NOAA/NASA GOES Project

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
