Share your photos from the Blizzard of '13 (colloquially known as Nemo).
Waves hammered the coast, trees and utility poles snapped, and snow burried our cars.

Through it all, you took pictures. Share them with Patch, we want to see what you'll remember about the Blizzard of 2013. We'll feature your photos on our Facebook page.
