Cherry Blossom Watch
The good news with the cold temperatures is that they have basically hit pause on the cherry blossoms, and they're holding up remarkably well. A few more days of cold temperatures will help prolong the bloom.

The bloom is still going strong. Some of the earliest bloomers around the MLK Memorial are losing their petals, but elswhere around the Tidal Basin the trees are looking lovely.
