Boston has snow a day before NU spring break!
I got out of Reinventing the News class today, and it was snowing. We got some snow here yesterday, but then the rain washed it away, so it’s nice to see white instead of slush again.
Back when I was working at The Patriot Ledger, a common practice was to grab a digital camera from the newsroom and shoot some video, which we would post without editing. It was a common joke in the newsroom to say enthusiastically, “Ledger Video: Raw.” There was a special emphasis on “raw,” as if you were referring to the hardcoreness/intensity of eating raw meat, or having raw hands after a long day of manual labor, or exposing yourself to the world, vulnerable, at your rawest.
I’m not here to comment on the semantics of newsroom jokes, though. I just drew inspiration from my Ledger days and picked up my camera and filmed some snow. Have a watch:
