Amazing Sub-tropical Storm Off-Shore

We were side swiped by a pretty powerful storm today. If it had been a hundred miles closer to shore, we would have had a massive blizzard. Instead, it stayed just offshore and gave us light snow all day. Enough to make all roads slippery and treacherous. 

Even though the storm was far away, it was stunning from above. Check out the beautiful satellite images of the storm. Notice the spiral and hurricane like features. 

While being on the fringe of the storm, we were still able to pick up a few inches of snow. This was due to a nice snow band that set up over western Connecticut.
