Light Snow on Cherry Blossoms


One week after the March Equinox, sometimes called the Spring Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere), it snowed in Washington, D.C. Although snow in late March is unusual in Washington, D.C., the latest measurable snowfall was recorded on 28 April 1898.

I went for a short photowalk to photograph snow on the cherry blossoms in the community where I live: light snow was falling when the photowalk began; the sky was clearing rapidly when the photowalk ended. According to the National Park Service, cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin will peak on Tuesday, 29 March 2011.
