Cherry Blossoms in Washington got to about 40% of their potential after cold snap

I did get to the Tidal Basin in Washington late today to see the cherry blossoms.

They seemed to be only about 40% of what they should have been.  Three nights in the mid twenties last week after the snow, and one cold night this week did severe damage after early blooming starting in late February.

Occasionally, especially near the water where it was warmer, one tree would be fully bloomed.

In the mean time, the GOP was pulling the American Health Care Act from the vote.  But along the Basin, nobody cared.
