And now for something completely different

How about a little distraction from all the technology news being generated by Apple and the Consumer Electronics Show being held in Las Vegas this week?

The Guardian posted a slideshow this morning with satellite pictures showing weather patterns and other interesting overhead shots of features on the Earth. This one goes a long way in explaining the weather Californians have been experiencing this Winter.
(The entire slideshow can be seen on The Guardian website.)

All this rain should mean great skiing this year in the Sierras, right? Here in Chicago all the snow melted prior to New Years Day. Having said that, the skiing here under the best of circumstances is, well, lacking.
