It’s been pretty unseasonably warm in the DC Area for the past 2 weeks, and a lot of locals (and probably some non-locals too) were pretty worried about the state of the Cherry Blossoms down on the Tidal Basin.
The local newscasters insisted that the heat would not cause the blossoms to fall early.
Well, guess what? They were wrong.
This picture was taken 3 days after the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival started.
Womp Womp Womp.
