    Does ‘winterized’ mean ‘covered in snow’?

    That looks like something off the Concept Ships sci-fi art blog. Very cool.

    I think ‘winterized’ means ‘prepared for severe cold weather.’ I took it to mean that the standard Nomad couldn’t handle the arctic temperature and precipitation, but the winterized version can.
