Who knew our first opportunity to enlist our readers and newly minted Capital Weather Watchers to document the season’s first snowfall would come before Halloween? Throughout the storm, we received a constant stream of reports as well as multimedia to ground truth what was happening throughout the region.

Thanks to these reports, we were able to keep everyone informed about who was getting rain, sleet, and snow, and how much. Suffice to say, our community of readers provided in­cred­ibly useful, entertaining, and visually stunning content. Thanks so much! And enjoy the imagery in this post!
