You may have heard that it snowed in Oklahoma yesterday. It was the kind of snow that’s great for playing in and doesn’t cause too much havoc.

While I was off of work, photographing my dogs in the snow, everybody else on staff spread out across the metro and took pictures for The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com.

Here are some of our staff pictures of the winter storm.
