Plenty of trees and power lines were downed, some areas flooded, and thousands were without power on Tuesday, but many residents in the Washington region were thankful the storm’s impact wasn’t more damaging than it was.

While the New York region sustained a devastating blow, the D.C. area largely escaped major problems.
