Poll: How would you grade this winter’s weather in Washington, D.C.?

It was the warmest meteorological winter (December through February) in Washington, D.C. since the Great Depression (only 1932 and 1890 were warmer), ranking third mildest on record. Snow? What snow? We’ve had 2” of it and never more than 0.6” in a single day!

Assuming we don’t get any more snow by the end of April, it will rank as 3rd least snowy (only 1973 and 1998 had less) on record since 1871.

Now is your chance to give the winter a grade. If you don’t like any of the choices in the poll below, feel free to write in a comment. (Allow a few seconds for the poll to load).
