Snow in January—it’s not just a good sign that yes, indeed, it really is winter out there, it’s also a good opportunity to gin up some web traffic. Don’t take our word for it, though: Ask Huffington Post D.C., which featured a slideshow of Twitter posts about the snow as the lead story this afternoon. (Naturally, it began with one from Luke Russert.)

That got us thinking—just how desperate are Washingtonians for photographic confirmation of what they see looking out their windows and/or glancing at their Twitter timeline?

This slideshow of the Top 10 Snowflakes on Washington City Paper‘s Parking Deck 2012 should answer the question. (Alternate title: The World’s Dumbest Slideshow 2012.) Enjoy! And stay warm.
