The DC-area welcomed its first snowstorm of the winter season on Monday. The immediate area got between 5 to 10 inches of snow, with up to 12 inches in surrounding parts of the region. Some Washingtonians spent day hurling snowballs or playing with their pets, while others were stranded on I-95 for more than 24 hours. Regardless of what you were doing yesterday, it was still beautiful outside. Here are some photos of the snowfall we spotted on social media.
