Amazing Pics of the White House During the January Blizzard in 1966

A late January blizzard blanketed Washington, DC with nearly twenty inches of snow in the winter of 1966. National Geographic Society photographer Joseph Scherschel took the opportunity to catch the beauty of the White House and its snowy surroundings against a clear blue sky.
