UVic in photos: The Blizzard of 2019

Campus News

On Friday, Feb. 8, Victoria saw a very unfamiliar sight: snow. The white, fluffy stuff that Canada is famous for blew all the way over to the West Coast for a rather chilly day filled with giant snowballs, hot chocolates, and frozen trees.

We took a walk around the University of Victoria campus to see what the low down was. Here’s UVic in photos, for the great Snowpocalypse 2.0. (For Snowpocalypse 1.0, click the link here.)
