This is running in a few papers tomorrow (in the UK)...

It really looks like a scene from the 'Day after Tomorrow'.

Personally I think it is stunningly beautiful.

Ooh..i can see my house from here!


That is a nice picture isn't it, first time i've ever seen the whole country white.

I wonder when the last time that happened?

Thanks for the pic.


CX.

HA!! you suckers got dumped on!!!

Pretty mild winter over here in the PNW, but then, we always seem to have the exact opposite weather phenomenon as the rest of our latitude or country

It does look strange to see our whole country covered in white.

It's not something I though I would see other than in a photoshop image so I'm quite pleased to be around for this. This may be the future but there are plenty of other threads about that... for now I am just enjoying this picture..

And here is a BIGGER version.

This is true - whilst in awe, there are those that do and will need help.

For anyone unfamiliar with UK geography: the darker blotches that look like they've had less snow are nothing of the sort - they're towns & cities!

It's a total white-out.

Fascinating image. Thanks for posting.

That is beautiful!!

It`s getting to be pain in the arse now though.

If it gets colder, which it is supposed to, all this snow will just freeze, it`s going to be treacherous.

Good info - towns, cities etc. are like skating rinks as they all have this covering of ice.

Hopefully next year we will get some more machinery in and sort things out (oh and some grit).

In Wyoming we just had temps in the -30s, and in some areas in the -50s degrees.... We have also a good amount of snow around here, and other states are about the same. But the worse thing is that there is a worse artic front on the way...and it doesn't look pretty....

I have seen temps go to the -40s, but up in the Canadian border, never down here this far south...

I have never actually met in person anyone from the UK, but I really think UK accents rock.

Anyways, that photo you posted is unreal, how a landmass that huge can be totally covered in Ice and snow like that. It does indeed look like a scene from The day after tomorrow.

I envy the UK, here in the NW USA, we have rain, clouds, and more rain. I would really really love a snow week or two.

Anyone have a picture of America like this? I'm curious on what we have over here.

www.nohrsc.noaa.gov...

The latest map, is the correct image. Almost all of the US is covered. Probably 2/3 to 3/4 is covered. You may have to save the file.
