LIVE: Spring Blizzard Cuts Power to Thousands in New England
The Great Red Spot is signature Jupiter.
Jupiter’s giant storm could hold two to three earth-sized planets.
We’ve got something, too:

A giant Nor’easter.
Could be the largest storm on earth, as I type this.
Watch this amazing timelapse.
A closer look:
Intense wind field. Nor’easter. 26 March 2014
Blizzard conditions and power outages reported.
Waves exceeded 10 feet.
Wind gusted up to 80 miles an hour, too.
Further evidence of my musing, “Is spring broken?”
Storm had @JimCantore written all over it.
Even other meteorologists called his name:

Meteorologist Cantore answered the bell.
He’s in there, trust me. Scraping snow off the pole:

Here’s his “live” encounter.
Can you imagine if this Nor’easter made landfall?
Its main “punch” remained out to sea.
So, unless George Clooney and the Andrea Gail make a comeback, this is not “The Perfect Storm.”
It’s vast, however.
Easily visible from space.
Probably from Jupiter, with binoculars or a small telescope.
Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is hundreds of years old.
Earth’s Nor’easter will likely “tire” in days.
The result: it’s news, but more weather and science news.
Some amazing science in-progress.
Impossible to pass up.
The visuals, alone.
One day, perhaps, an astronaut’s “live” coverage of The Great Red spot?
Until then, enjoying a great Nor’easter.
From the safety of satellite technology.
