Scene from the "snowpocalypse"—a week of snow, including one very significant event, descended upon the Puget Sound Lowlands. The first snows fell on Saturday the 14th. Then the big snow happened Tuesday night the 17th. Atmospheric conditions warmed so that rain fell. It was not warm enough to melt the snow, some of which is still around in piles today, Tuesday the 31st of January. Many tree branches snapped under the weight of the heavy snow, and many electrical lines were damaged. Hundreds of thousands of people were without electrical service for days.

Snow scene, Heritage Park, former site of Occupy Olympia, on Wednesday the 18th of January. This was a major snow day. Many if not most schools were closed, and many businesses were also shuttered. Annie Appel, Evergreen graduate and LA area photographer, visited Olympia, and conducted a series of portraits to help tell the story of the Occupy Movement.
