These People Went All Out for the Pat Collins Snow Stick Challenge

Pat Collins' Snow Stick Challenge asked people to "get creative." And boy, did they.

As he does anytime there's measurable snow, News4's Pat Collins took his trusty Snow Stick (follow the Stick on Twitter here) down to the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Fessenden Street Tuesday.

First, he spent a little time with D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, who measured the snow for Pat. It clocked in at 3 inches on the Snow Stick.

Then, Pat issued his challenge: Show St. Patrick's Day spirit in the snow.

The official Pat Collins Snow Stick challenge had a St. Patrick's Day theme.

The most creative pose would be honored with a replica Pat Collins Snow Stick, which has measured blizzards in the D.C. area for decades.
