Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Oh my God, it's snowpacalypse!

As a follow-up to our previous post this is a snapshot of that storm developing in the Mid-West as we speak. Taken at 12 noon it stretches all the way from Mexico to Canada!

 The #snowpacalypse is coming, let the above picture be a wake up call.

Captured by NASA on January 20, this image shows the central part of North America, covering an area from Mexico almost to Canada, and bounded by the Rockies in the left of the picture, and Western Florida and the Great Lakes to the right. You'll be forgiven for not seeing all that at first glance as the majority of the picture is obscured by
the four horsemen of the apocalypsea giant swath of snow, ice, wind, and cold.
The part of the picture that's most interesting to weather enthusiasts isn't the white mass that's already blanketing the northern parts of the country, but rather the cloud in the middle of the image. The one that looks like an evil white stingray. That's the formation headed East now.
Blizzard watches and winter storm warnings are already springing up along the East Coast, with some of the most serious weather expected to hit major metropolitan areas around Washington DC on Friday, followed by Philadelphia and New York.
Check out an animation of the blizzard as it grows, taken by NASA's GOES-East satellite. The first part of the video shows the development of another storm, which already passed through the South.
