As kids we had snowball fights and played football in the snow. As adults we take photos of birds as our way of playing in the snow. Well, some of us anyway. Some of us still play the old-fashioned way, too.

So here are a few of my shots from today’s storm and a few photos from readers. Send in your shots for inclusion on this post, too! Send them to bozclark@earthlink.net

I’ll update this post throughout the day.

Thanks and have fun out there.
