One of the best parts of this social media community has been the photos shared by many talented people. Some are amateur, others professional. But all compliment the combination of weather forecasting and observations. Since there was so much attention paid to the little bit of snow and ice last week, I wanted to recap the best pictures in this collection or gallery if you will. These are not in any particular order, other than the dates they were sent to me. Along with each photo, the message that was attached… and link to follow these people on their pages as well. I hope you enjoy.

After the storm – today’s sun rose over Kent Island at 7:23 AM, and this photo was taken two minutes later, one of a series I took while braving the single digit wind-chill factor. Check out Chesapeake Scenes – Susan Hale’s Photos
