Do you miss the January 2011 snowstorm? Check out our slideshow of last year's wintry weather. Then take our poll and let us know how you feel about the frozen stuff.

We gathered photos from around the area of fireworks, and on Thursday we will have a special tribute to Snellville in Viewfinder.
We had Patch photographers all over the metro area, and here are some of the photos that we shot. From Gwinnett County and beyond, looks like Atlantans were having a lot of fun.
