Snowfalls Beautify Campus

It wasn’t the biggest snowfall of the season, but the Feb. 3 storm (shown in all images except bottom) that brought close to 5 inches of wet snow to the campus was among the most beautiful. The flakes clung to each shoot and twig, giving the bare trees the glamour of cherry blossoms in full bloom. It won’t be long until the real cherry blossoms open, and it’s likely that many NIH’ers can’t wait for that day, as twin major storms on Feb. 5-6 and Feb. 10-11 closed federal offices for almost a week. The photo at the bottom was captured by Zachary Dezman, a fellow in the NIH Clinical Research Training Program, who skied to work on Saturday, Feb. 6 and took the picture.
