D.C.’s cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom

Signs of spring are here

One of the issues with living in Washington, D.C. is learning to understand the weather. And by “understand,” that of course means be incredibly uncomfortable during frigid temperatures one day then intense rain the next day then finally glorious warmth and sunshine the next.

Because of the recent snow “storm” in D.C., WUSA9 reported that the city’s cherry blossoms will not hit peak bloom for the first time in nearly a century. Before, the peak bloom was scheduled between March 19 and March 22.

Despite the potential loss of 90 percent of the blossoms, the flowers are still standing strong, blooming away in several parts of the city. If interested in seeing exactly where to find cherry blossoms in D.C., check out this Curbed DC article.
