(Newser) – What meteorologists are calling the biggest snowstorm in decades is causing chaos from Mexico to Maine. NASA—which says this "massive winter storm affecting a large portion of Great Plains and Midwest" is set to get worse—has released a satellite image in which the US is barely visible under the storm, Gizmodo reports. Much more travel disruption is expected as the monster storm system moves northeast to New England.
