Snow Days: Our readers share their best snowy play-day photos

With the snowfall we’ve been having, The Herald asked for pictures. Readers absolutely delivered.

With what was shaping up to be the biggest snowstorm in a decade bearing down on Snohomish County, on top of several inches of snow already on the ground, The Daily Herald put out a call for our readers’ very best Snow Days photos.

And boy, did our readers come through.

Here are just a few of our favorites. See over a hundred more photos shared on the Everett Herald Facebook page.

Just like snowflakes, no two are alike.

Snow day or not, The Herald shares one — sometimes two — reader’s photo each week. These pictures come from online submissions at www.heraldnet.org/yourphotos. Submit your own photo there: It could be selected to run on our Community Extra page.
