Snow way, man

Campus was blindsided with a blizzard Wednesday after a remarkably warm weekend.

But despite hundreds of closures and warnings from surrounding city governments, school districts and the Facility and Services department, classes were in schedule.

The C-U community was estimated to get upwards of 10 inches from the storm.

The Champaign-Urbana area was put under watch for hazardous winter weather from early Wednesday morning until late that night.

While University students trudged through the slush and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph, classes at other central Illinois universities like Illinois State University in Normal, Eastern Illinois University in Charleston and Parkland College in Champaign were not in session.
