With the snow totals piling up to historic levels today and East Coast residents braced for monumental amounts of more white stuff, astronaut Scott Kelly shared this amazing image of Winter Storm Jonas snapped from the International Space Station in low Earth orbit.  The photo captures the intense magnitude of Mother Nature's January tantrum as it trudges steadily across the Mid-Atlantic region and eases up the Eastern seaboard.

Have a look, and we hope those affected are riding out this wild wintry whiteout in safety and comfort.
