Everyone who knows me knows I love snow. If there is even the slightest chance for a snowfall here in the D.C. area, I am always glued to the weather forecast. I study the Doppler radar, scrutinize the predictions, and listen with bated breath to every watch, warning and advisory.
It looks like my ever-dwindling patience with a nearly snow-less winter may be rewarded tomorrow. It’s always a treat to see the city transformed under a blanket of snow. While I wait for my snow of 2013 with fingers crossed, let’s look back at a few photos of Washington, D.C. snowstorms past:
- Enjoy many more photographs of snowstorms and blizzards in the Prints and Photographs Online Catalog.
- Beyond the photograph, our collections also hold many prints of snow scenes. For example, our pre-1915 Japanese Fine Prints collection includes dozens of wintry woodcuts.
- Mostly found within our Poster and Popular Graphic Arts collections, you might also enjoy lithographs on a snowy theme.
