Winter is here!

Well, unofficially, that is.

With the first snow of the season arriving in the capital city last week, and an estimated 8-12 inches expected today, we want to see your best and favorite photos of the white stuff in Juneau.

Here’s an example from Angelo Saggiomo, who snapped this shot of the reflecting landscape at Auke Lake last Saturday. Beautiful!

Send your snow photos to by Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. We’ll pick our favorite and feature them all in a slideshow at The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to the Rookery Cafe.

So get outside today, be creative and capture the scene as another snowstorm blankets our town.
