Stuck at work as the cherry blossoms' peak bloom dates arrive this week? We sympathize. Fortunately, EarthCam and the National Park Service (NPS) are livestreaming from the Tidal Basin as the blooms come into view.
Peak bloom is expected to happen Wednesday and Thursday, the NPS said. Peak bloom is considered to occur when 70 percent of the Yoshino cherry trees along the Tidal Basin are in bloom.
This year's National Cherry Blossom Festival kicked off Sunday and runs through April 17. Check out 10 can't-miss events here.
