💔 It’s not’s the pandemic (probably)

Plus: King County Metro buses are sporting a new look.

We’re back, which means it’s Tuesday!

Have you been enjoying the blossoming cherry trees? As a UW alum, seeing cherry blossoms around campus was a sign that warm, sun-filled days were to come. There was an air of utter joy and excitement as tourists flocked to the quad to see the famed cherry blossoms for themselves. This year, the UW is asking for folks to stay home and take in the cherry trees via their live stream

Hopefully, everyone will be able to go to the UW campus and see the magic for themselves next year. If you’re curious about the UW’s cherry trees, check out this article from our archives that gives some historical (and horticultural) background.

Back to school...spring edition. Yesterday marked the first day that Seattle-area elementary-school students returned to school. However, many kids will not return at all and instead continue remote learning due to logistical and safety reasons. When middle school and high school students will return to in-person learning is a work in progress. (The Seattle Times)

A "new" Nirvana song. Yesterday marked 27 years since Kurt Cobain passed away. The project, Lost Tapes of the 27 Club, uses AI to write and perform songs in the style of musicians who died at the age of 27. To commemorate the marking of Cobain’s death, the Club released “Drowned in the Sun,” their tribute to the Seattle grunge icon. (GeekWire)
