This image released by NASA shows how the snowstorm looks from space. The United States is under there somewhere.   (NASA)

(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.

"is causing chaos from Mexico to Maine. " nahhhh, i'm in the middle of it. most people are just taking a snow day and resting. its a nice break and give the trucks the space to clear crap. using the word "chaos" is just silly.

Good ole NASA. What is interesting about this image is that Alabama, Georgia and Florida, in toto is under snow. We ain't. It's cold, but no snow.
