Winter Storm Nemo: Share Your Blizzard Pictures

Forecasters expect that the blizzard bearing down on New England this Friday and Saturday will dump two to three feet of snow from Boston, Massachusetts, to southern Maine. In Boston, meteorologists say the snowstorm—dubbed Nemo by the Weather channel—could be among the ten worst in the last century.

If you venture out in the snow with your camera, send your best blizzard photo to National Geographic’s Your Shot. You just might find your shot featured in our storm coverage. We’ll also consider it for the magazine.

Traveling light and using your camera phone instead? Tag your pictures with #NemoPhotos on Instagram and Twitter and we will re-tweet the best submissions.

By all means, be safe. Before you get buried in a snow drift, check out our tips on photographing weather events.

    The Buffoons and Cartoon-Like Characters at the Weather Channel with their Leprechaun-like forecasters like Forbes who jumps around, flailing his hands like a berserk, out of control puppet .. ..Cantore who is so short he appears to be a weight-lifting Troll .. women forecasters who eyebrows go up & down at such a feverish pitch that you expect them to explode in flames .. who are all more suited to be actors on a very bad hollyrot sound stage ( what can you expect .. they are owned by NBC ! lol ) They make a mockery of all the really hardworking meteorologists who do their serious work everyday without being clowns and shills .. and obviously praying for awful weather so they can scare the bejabbers out of everyone .. And now these idiots are naming Winter storms ?? .. Good Grief .. What unabashed, stupid, idiotic arrogance …. Don’t go away mad .. Just Go Away !!!!

    Ditto to what Jack says. Saw that you used the “Name That Storm” marketing tool that the idiots at TWC started and will go so far as to say that I will STOP using the NGS website as my homepage if this act of blind credibility continues…..
    I can hear it now….”.Drizzle Event Harry …….”
