Looks like parts of Toronto - back in December when we got our first snowfalls.
Kidding aside, these are some nice shots of an event you probably don't get too often. You've capture the scenery well and gotten the exposure right which can be hard when a lot of snow is falling or dominates the scene.

Awesome photos all round - really like the mood. In the first photo I probably would have moved slightly to the right, but it's really good now anyway.

And there's me thinking you didn't get snow that far South.

Really like the exposure and lighting in the first image, that's really spot on well done.

These are really well done . They really capture the mood and feel of a snowy night - something I haven't experienced since moving to Texas.

Thanks for posting... reminds me of Niagara Falls when I was there in December... now all I've gotta say is "Alabama, welcome to my world, I know you don't come often, but it's great to have you on board."

Nice series. I refuse to go out and take photographs. I am so fed up with snow and now ice and sleet. I don't know how the northerners put up with it. At least you captured some of the beauty to be found in snow.

Very cool--not quite as bad as the "Blizzard of '93," though, whose aftermath left me barbecuing the rapidly-defrosting contents of my freezer while standing knee-deep in snow there in Shelby County.

Lovely candid shots. Looks a bit like Cape Dorset today except for the trees. But we are a tad further north. Must be unsettling over-all. And a major storm still moving through.

Nice captures, especially for such low light conditions.

If I was in the market of making a restaurant there I would open Kobe burgers right next to Bryant's just for the heck of it .

Seriously though, these have very cool rendering. I like the way trees look on 0218.

Beautiful shots, but I feel for you. We're kind of used to it, but you guys...
Best wishes.
And way to make lemonade, so to speak.
Thanks for sharing.
