- In Durham County, Winter Storm Pax dumped up to eight inches of snow and as much as a quarter-inch of freezing rain this week. Many Duke community members found themselves digging out of the accumulation, but on campus, staff from Facilities, Parking and Transportation, Duke Police and other service units worked hard beginning Feb. 12 to keep Duke safe for students, faculty and staff.
Here's a collection of updates and images as told by Duke community members as the storm hit the Triangle, beginning Tuesday afternoon:
