Fan Photo Spotlight: February 4th Winter Storm on the Plains
A winter storm affected several of the Plains states today. For all the schoolchildren that got to enjoy an extra day off, it was a blessing. Fans of those sparkles from the sky, welcomed the snow as it turned the landscape into a "snowscape". For many folks across the nation's mid-section, today was an unwelcome reminder that winter isn't done with us yet. We received many photos, and thank everyone who submitted their pics. Here's a look at today's winter storm through YOUR eyes.
