While this photograph wasn’t taken today, it definitely captures how frozen DC currently is.
This photograph was taken last week after we got some snow fall over night. The temperature was nice and cold so the snow could actually stick around for a little bit. But definitely not as cold as it is today. Some areas will be getting down into the single digits, which doesn’t happen that often in the Washington DC area.
I took this photo from the top of the Lincoln Memorial steps looking out over the National Mall towards the Washington Monument. It was cold, but the worst part was the wind. Gusts of 30-40 mph, you got cold very quick standing around outside. While it was early and cold out, that didn’t stop the tourists! Two tour buses full of tourists pulled up while I was there, you can actually see one of the bus on the right side of the photo. Bad weather doesn’t stop sight-seeing in this town.
