Current Snow Cover

It has been so long ( I really should say sooooooooooooooo long) since it has been sunny in the upper Midwest that I have not had a good opportunity to see the snow cover from visible satellite imagery.  Below are two images covering the region.  Most of what you see is snow cover as clouds are few and far between.  As a reminder, the dark areas in northern Minnesota are pine forests and the snow there is just as deep as every where else for the most part, but the pine trees “hide” the snow underneath.
