It was an impressive snow storm in the end. Initially, predictions were modest. But when the storm came, it was a good ten inches of snow across the campus. And so the children of the Seminary discovered old fashioned play. Snow does not involve an X-box or a screen. Instead, you take a sled and go from the top of the slope to the bottom.

Meanwhile, we all moved around the campus. Roads had to be cleared. Salt had to be put down. The campus needed to be as safe as a campus can be in these conditions. So once again, the staff in Facilities arrived early and stayed late. They know the drill. Many of them have done this many times before.

So on this day after the snow storm, let us make sure every single time we walk pass someone from Facilities please say "thank you". They have worked hard.
