Photos: Capturing the winter-spring boundary
Late winter snow and spring’s new growth in Olympia, Washington
I don’t know if anyone in the South Sound area expected snow this morning. One of my housemates had to tell me to look out the window before I got dressed for entirely incorrect weather. Even when I could see the flakes falling, the weather app only said there were “showers in the vicinity”.
Meteorologists aren’t correct all the time. We’ve been seeing the beginnings of spring for the past couple of weeks, and most of us on campus seemed under the impression that winter was over. But to be honest, those of us who are still here needed the distraction.
We’re all on edge after the first COVID-19 case in our county was confirmed two days ago. Because it’s the end of the quarter and next week’s evaluation conferences will all be conducted remotely, few students have a reason to be on campus. I’m here because I have an on-campus apartment, so I took the opportunity to take some photos on my Canon Rebel T3i as I walked on campus with my partner this morning.
