Here is another interesting view from space. This is also from my basement satellite station. Today we are again between snowstorms, another storm expected early tomorrow morning, which should change to rain to make a soggy, wet mess. At least tomorrow is Christmas eve, so I don't have trudge to work. But I should get somewhat motivated to do some kind of Christmas shopping.
Anyway, look closely at this image. You can see a large area of snow on the ground from Montana north, with a single large cloud in the middle. If you look at Washington, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams are sticking way up above the clouds. Must be a sunny day up there since you can see a shadow of the mountains on the cloud tops.
