December 12, 2008--A natural-color image taken by NASA's Terra satellite shows snow on southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama after a rare snowstorm on December 11.

The snowfall forced the closure of schools, government offices, and bridges; triggered automobile crashes; and cut off power, according to the Associated Press.
