Photo of the Day - Soyuz on the Launch Pad in Snowstorm

I couldn't believe the Russians launched Soyuz TMA-22 in this kind of weather! Seems it wasn't a problem as long as it wasn't too windy.

NASA - Soyuz on the Launch Pad:
"The Soyuz TMA-22 rocket is seen on the launch pad during a snow storm the morning of the launch of Expedition 29 to the International Space Station at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, Monday, Nov. 14, 2011."
