From the Mayor’s Office:

“In advance of today’s wintery mix, the DC Snow Team will have plows on hand to treat roads, bridges and overpasses as necessary.

Residents concerned about the treatment or plowing of specific roads should call the Citywide Call Center by dialing 311. For more information about DC’s snow program and preparing for winter weather, or to see where District Snow Team plows are working, go to snow.dc.gov.

Residents and motorists can register to receive important weather alerts from the District on their devices by signing up for AlertDC at alertdc.dc.gov.”

From the National Park Service:

“The Japanese flowering cherry trees reached peak bloom this afternoon, meaning that 70% of the Yoshino variety (the most abundant of the approximately 3,700 trees around the Tidal Basin, in East Potomac Park, and on the grounds of the Washington Monument) are in full bloom. This is two days later than the average peak bloom date of April 3.

Best viewing of the trees will be for the next four to seven days, but they can last for up to two weeks under ideal conditions, such as cool temperatures to slow the progress from flowers to leaves, and a lack of high winds or heavy rains to bring the petals down.”

From the National Parks Service:

“The bloom period has begun, meaning 20% of the Yoshino trees are at full blossom. Peak bloom, occurring when that figure reaches 70%, now projected for April 5-8, thanks to last weekend’s warm temps. Keeping an eye on gusty winds tomorrow, enemy of the blossoms!”

Toby or Not Toby – A Snowball Battle

Today at 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Carousel on the National Mall
900 Jefferson Dr SW

Winter Storm Toby (aka the Nor’easter) is coming and threatening to cover the DMV area with snow. In the likely event of this happening, your favorite place to spend time – work – could be shut down (especially if you’re a fed or connected to the feds!). So here at #DCSFA, we want to relieve frustrations about unscheduled telework, cabin fever, and the lack of afternoon traffic…

Let’s meet on the National Mall in front of the Smithsonian Castle at 4:30pm for some snow-throwing fun. The location is a block away from the Smithsonian Metro Station on the Blue/Orange/Silver lines and 3 blocks away from the Navy Memorial/Archives Station on the Green/Yellow Lines. We marked the Carousel on the National Mall as a nearby landmark – not as a target or the actual venue.

As usual, some simple rules apply for everyone’s safety and fun: (more…)
