When the snow starts flying, our inbox, Twitter, and Facebook feeds fill up with countless gorgeous photos of our winter wonderland.
And then, there are some... not-so-gorgeous ones. It's OK, not everyone is Ansel Adams. We usually just choose the best to showcase and move on...
But in Denver, where it admittedly snows a little more often than Seattle, one news anchor took to the airwaves to say he's had it with the endless photos that just show snow piling up on viewers' patio furniture.
"Yes, everyone's impressed with your four-piece furniture set. We saw it at Costco too," KUSA anchor Kyle Clark said, tongue planted firmly in cheek (maybe?)
Clark goes on to say, rightly so, that Colorado is one of the most beautiful spots on Earth and yet instead of exploring their winter-land beauty, people are just taking the easy way out by snapping a pic out their window and sending it in.
With snow creeping into the forecast around the Puget Sound region next week, we say, take Clark's advice -- get out there (if it's safe) and get some unique shots. Or at least, as Clark suggests, if the patio is as far as you can get, be creative with it -- put something on it. Do something funny. And by all means, DO still send it in to us -- you can post it on our YouNews page or Tweet it to us @komonews or post it on Facebook..
Now, if Clark can also go into those "ruler in the snowbank" photos... :)
