Earlier on Wednesday:
5:30 am: I woke up in Main Hall this morning, having stayed overnight because of the dire forecast. I looked outside and there were our Trinity crews already plowing and shoveling, but the snow didn’t look so bad. I went to my office and made coffee.
6:30 am: The TV news folks say it’s getting worse. I don’t see it yet.
8:30 am: Total whiteout. The blizzard is here! I went over to the dining hall earlier and there were our hard-working crews just finishing breakfast and heading back out into this storm. I tried to encourage them to stay indoors for a while but they want to keep on top of this mess.
9:30 am: Here’s what it looks like out in Seymour Court:
and here’s the view to the faculty parking lot:
I guess we made a good call staying closed today. Sure hate to miss all this school.
Check back later I will post throughout the day…
