I posted both of these during the two snow storms, but since you made a video/photos post, I'll repost them in case some people didn't see them before. These were taken in Alexandria.

The snowstorm of last Saturday: Lots of videos and photos that my fiance and I took.

The Tues/Wednesday storm. Again, more photos and videos that we took during the storm.

Have you considered starting a CWG Flickr group? There are tons of AMAZING photos of the storm on Flickr, many of them in DC groups, and I bet you'd get even more submissions that way!

....God forbid they should revise history, the old version was so ... mmmmmmmm one-sided? incomplete? racially biased?

CWG feel free to delete my comment along with the klansman's it refers to.

Walter, love the shark! An embarrassment of riches this time, huh?

A short video of the snow in Baltimore (S. Bouldin St. in Canton) as it happened:

Snowpocalypse in Baltimore (Timelapse)

(I had nothing to do with the making or production of this video - - I found it on the Baltimore Sun web site. Thanks should go to 3SonsProduction for the video.)

Several people 'appreciated' (as in 'got a chuckle') the shoveling of the sidewalks seen near the end of the clip.

Beautiful photos! Love the black and white one!

I checked the readers' photogallery every day during Snowmageddon/Snoverkill - the selections above are great, and it is worth checking out the full gallery. Thanks for this community service!

I made it back to sunny CA, so thanks CWG for letting me know what I was getting into on my DC business trip last week! My pictures aren't as spectacular as some already posted, since the most interesting scenes happened at times when I couldn't stop to take a picture, but here are a few that I could take:

Foot's forecast is calling for a solid six inches in the area and as high as 12 in northern parts of Maryland. How come the models are so far off from each other?

Here's some photos from last weekend and during the week. From Friday night down to the mall during the start of the blizzard, to the snowball fight on Dupont Circle Saturday, to drifts at night after the second one, and then the day after the day after tomorrow! Join nearly 13000 fans on

The models aren't that different. 6" in northern maryland is possible. our forecast indicates amounts will increase to the north.

FYI, I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, but Walter's latest creation is on Channel 9. Love the shark Walter!!!!

Thanks for all the great pics everyone.

So Walter, are you going to use up the rest of that snow for something else? :D

@ CWG, seriously, go ahead and delete my first comment on this thread, along with the return of the Knight..... (you had already deleted his/her/its first post by the time mine appeared)

@ ksrgatorfn1
@ walter-in-falls-church, we'll be able to say we "knew him when...." Back before you were famous! You are a very talented guy, seriously.

The pictures of streets are unbelievable

Sad too as they are probably taken 2-3 days after the storm yet still untouched by any plows

I've got some photos up - mostly from after smowmageddon, but before snoverkill, at . The tree down at the end of our block made life interesting ...

Here is how my fiance and I spent snowmageddon in Glenmont, MD

After the storm, I went out at 1:30am to take some long exposures of the wintry landscape

Those pictures are AWESOME!

I can't take my eyes off of the one black and white. It is memorizing.
