Well, it shows clear weather! I did try rotating it, but that made the proportions all wrong.

Washington does not get snow very often, but it is lovely when it does. Was this also an ice storm, suunto?

Not that time, just a nice soft snow. I saw enough ice storms while in that area to last a lifetime...

My dad has pictures of me standing in the Potomac one year when it froze over. Had to be early 70's at the latest. I don't remember exactly where but we were right next to the canal, a bridge crosses the river on the right...and the road heading out of dc kind of hangs over the road going in. Georgetown area I think.

One last hysterical - er - historical photo; springtime comes to North Dakota! All of the large trees in this photo now are dead and gone (Dutch elm disease) and the shed has been torn down. At least the memories are still there...

Did I misinterpret the starting date for this contest? I thought that it was open for entries as of havalotta's first notification on this thread...
