The East Coast may see more rain than a snow this Christmas if the unusually warm weather is any indication. But it’s all the more reason to take a look wistful back at the white winter’s from Washington’s past, whether inconvenient or awe inspiring. At In Sight, we wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday season.
