In case you somehow missed it, a pretty large portion of the country is currently buried beneath a pretty large portion of snow.
But it’s hard to truly appreciate the scale of it all until you see it from space.
The ISS Facebook page followed up with some more photos, including a shot of thundersnow in action.
Of course, a single shot of thundersnow—even from space—cannot match the glory of the six instances of thundersnow and one amazed meteorologist captured on film during the 2015 Boston blizzard.
The snow is truly a sight to behold—and it should stay just that. This is your yearly reminder to please not eat snow. It’s gross. According to a 2014 study in Environmental Science: Process and Impacts, snow is really good at sucking in pollutants from things like car exhaust. So it’s not recommended you eat it.
What should you eat then? Eggs.
