The snow which fell overnight was initially heavy and wet, beautifully clinging to trees, signs and surfaces of all kinds. Even though some powerful winds drove through the region this morning, the whitened landscape has remained a playground for area photographers.
Here’s an assortment of photos sent in to us through email, Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook. As always, thanks for all of the submissions…
