A powerful winter storm left New Englanders digging out from heavy snow in early February 2013. According to unofficial totals released by the National Weather Service, snowfall totaled up to 33.5 inches in Connecticut, 31.0 inches in Massachusetts, and 30.4 inches in New Hampshire. You can check out an amazing time lapse of the snowfall in CT by clicking on this link and finding the video on my FaceBook page.

NASA's Terra satellite captured this natural-color image on February 10, 2013. Through a partial veil of thin clouds, MODIS could detect snow cover stretching from the East Coast westward past Lake Ontario.

In addition to heavy snowfall, the storm also brought strong winds. Unofficial spotter reports from the National Weather Service listed gusts up to 83 miles per hour along the Massachusetts coast.
