This past week the northern Rockies was hit by a major snow storm dumping reports of more than three feet of snow in the area and leaving many without power for days. We asked our Facebook followers to share their snow photos with us. We were overwhelmed with the response! While we wished we could have printed them all, these were our favorites and ones we thought would print well.
