It's as bad as it looks

A satellite image captured by NASA on Friday night showed the size of the winter storm that continued to batter the East Coast on Saturday.

The photo shows the storm’s white clouds stretching from New England to Florida.

Another image captured on Saturday showed the movement of the storm, as it shifted North, where Washington D.C. and New York City were under blizzard warnings.

American astronaut Scott Kelly also posted pictures to Twitter of the snow storm, tracking its movement from the International Space Station.
