WASHINGTON (AP) - Even the start of the snowstorm couldn’t keep some tourists from visiting the White House.

On Friday afternoon, several groups and couples were walking in the park in front of the mansion, and the fountain in the home’s yard was still spraying water.

Newlyweds Stefan Tomic and Cherokee Tomic, both 22, were visiting from New York and had just arrived in the city Friday by bus. They said they didn’t want to change their plans because of the weather and that their first stop was the White House.

“We’re just going to have fun,” Cherokee Tomic said.

Nimesh Thakker, 32, of Miami was visiting Trishna Patel, 29, of Maryland. As they stopped at the White House, they said their plans were “staying warm” and maybe having a snowball fight.
