BONNERS FERRY— After a mild winter left many people wondering if the county would see any significant signs of the season, a cold snap hit earlier this month, with wind chills in the single digits and below zero in some areas.

The Kootenai River iced over is some parts, only to be followed by a snowstorm early this week, bringing a decent accumulation of mostly light, fluffy snow.

According to reports from people around the county on Wednesday morning, there was around two feet of snow on the ground, ranging from 22-27 inches, but some areas saw significantly more.

Rusty Ritz and Anita Dinning both reported 32 inches in Copeland near Mt. Hall Elementary School and Sarah Thomas reported three feet up past Dawson Lake. Teresa Huber-Atkins had 38 inches just north of 3-Mile.

As people plow and shovel their way through the snow, they took time to look back on some of their favorite times this winter, and share some of those images with the Herald.
