The Great Cherry Blossom Distraction

So, we had a windstorm yesterday, and the evening before, the weather people on the local news were all doom and gloom about the cherry blossoms at the DC Tidal Basin. It was literally, "If you want to see them, go NOW, before they all blow away." Well, we took our chances, since it was cloudy yesterday and I needed some photos with a clear sky, which was predicted for today. (Snow on Saturday!) The flowering plum in our yard seemed no worse for the weather in the height of the storm, and I thought we'd be okay waiting until this morning. Here are the photos! If you don't live in the Washington DC area, these are for you to enjoy viewing.

Before Dawn

After Dawn

Not sure if I'm going to get much painting done today.
