Look at Washington, D.C.’s beautiful snow, before it’s all gone (PICTURES)

It’s another cold one today, but the forecast Saturday through Wednesday is generally mild, with highs in the 50s and 60s.   By the middle of next week, all that will remain of snow locally will be those crusty, cruddy piles in strip mall parking lots.

So, to honor the beautiful snowfall we had Monday, what’s left of it now, and the talented individuals who photographed it, here are my 10 favorite snow photos taken this week and shared with the Capital Weather Gang (via Flickr and Facebook):

1. Connecticut Ave. snow – the District – March 3 (EllenO)
