If you’re reading this from anywhere in the United States right now, there’s a pretty good chance it’s cold outside. We’re in the middle of a massive freeze that could last until March, the breadth of which NASA’s Terra satellite just captured in the remarkable view you see above. See all that territory blanketed in white? That’s snow. It’s not cloud patterns, or a representation of wind currents, just a bunch of frozen water atop even colder ground. NASA supplemented the photo with some harrowing, record-breaking numbers:

  • 1ºF in Baltimore, MD
  • -6ºF in Louisville, KY
  • 7ºF in Charlotte, NC
  • 4ºF in Asheville, NC
  • 18ºF in Macon, GA
  • 14ºF in Athens, GA

So if you live anywhere north of, say, Houston, be sure to bundle up before you head outside this weekend. (Actually, why are you going outside anyways? Are you going to see Hot Tub Time Machine 2? Before you do…)
