March 6 (UPI) -- Washington, D.C. is expecting an exciting few days as fast-falling snow and warm temperatures combine into "thundersnow" for a brutal late-season storm dubbed "Snowquester."

In response to inclement weather, the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee cancelled its Wednesday hearing on climate change.

The cancellation elicited a lot of laughs on social media, as snowstorms often do when talking about global warming.
