Recently we have all been experiencing weather events that seem unique and out of the ordinary. It is especially galling that many people conflate unexpected weather events to bolster their argument to deny climate change. In the western locations of the Pacific Northwest, between Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, B.C., we generally expect minimal snowfall every couple of years, but every five years or so, we experience a serious amount of snow that pretty much incapacitates the region. This year was one of those years. The heavy snows, strong winds, and freezing temperatures resulted in frozen pipes, fallen trees, and electrical outages for days, affecting hundreds of thousands throughout the region.
I’ve posted a few images and videos I made about the snow around the house and studio on my Flickr and Instagram accounts; if you prefer to view the images here, click on one of the images to open them in the gallery.
