A couple weeks back, the Seattle region was hit with one of the heaviest snow storms that it’s seen in decades. As a result, schools were closed, roads were iced over, and snow just kept on pouring down, inch after inch.
I got cabin fever after the third day, and decided to go out and enjoy the so-called ‘snowpocalypse 2019’ a little bit, and brought my Leica M240 w/ Leica 50mm Summilux ASPH-M and Leica Q out to capture the beauty of it all.
Once the roads cleared a little bit, classes and operations at the University of Washington started up again. Unfortunately, tragedy unfolded on the first day of the campus’ return to normal operations, and an incident on campus led to the death of a student.
Initially, the community was up in arms against the university’s administrative team for restarting campus operations whilst the campus was still unsafe to traverse due to heavy ice and slick pathways. However, it was soon confirmed that the incident had nothing to do with the campus’ icy condition. Nonetheless, the campus still showed signs of the Snowpocalpyse’s aftermath.
