After days of snowfall in the Clearwater and surrounding area, the Times reached out to the community asking them to share their winter wonderland photos — and the community delivered!

We had dozens of photos sent through Facebook and email showcasing kids being silly, fur babies having fun, beautiful landscapes and snow-covered homes and buildings.

As more photos come in, we will update the gallery above. Enjoy!
