You lived it on the ground.
The picture doesn't look any warmer from space.
But, a satellite image captured by NASA during the coldest month ever in Buffalo last February could be the hottest picture caught from space in the agency's 2016 Tournament Earth contest.
You can vote to make that happen.
The top 32 images taken by NASA's Earth Observatory are on display and being whittled down by popular vote in the fourth-annual contest.
The tournament opened Monday and will continue week-by-week throughout the month of March, coinciding with NCAA March Madness.
Dubbed, "Baby, It's Cold Outside," the image featuring Buffalo Niagara is included in a gallery of images taken of the eastern United States last winter. It sits in the eight-seed of the event section of NASA's tournament bracket and is pitted against three hurricanes caught on camera over the Pacific Ocean.
And, it isn't Lake Erie's only appearance in the contest.
Also in the Event Section, a satellite shot captured over the western side of the lake's annual toxic algae bloom is also up for consideration as NASA's image of the year.
