The date for this year's famed Cherry Blossom Festival has already been pushed back a few times, so what will this latest Spring storm mean?
A National Park Spokeswoman says it will not put a damper on the celebrated pink and white blossoms inthe nation's capital. The predicted peak bloom dates for the trees is still between April 3rd and April 6th. The snow itself doesn't have any effect on the trees, but cold weather already pushed back the bloom dates.
