As I've been scouring the National Weather Service and NOAA websites this afternoon following the winter storm, I came across satellite imagery that really puts into perspective the strength of Friday's snow event.

Mid-Michigan is expected to see a total of 6 to 10 inches of snowfall out of Friday's storm, and, the possibility for more Saturday night and Sunday also exists.

But, checkout this screenshot of the satellite imagery Friday afternoon as the brunt of the storm hit the region!
