Who Has the Snow?

It’s pretty easy to see where snow is on the ground in this MODIS satellite image from NOAA. Pretty cool! You can also see Lake Erie frozen solid while Lake Ontario is not. The reason why is because Erie is much shallower than Ontario. The deeper the body of water the more difficult it is to freeze over.
