A frigid welcome

State News Top Stories - January 6, 2014 - 11:38pm

The combination of dropping temperatures and climbing snowfall left students without classes all day Monday and Tuesday morning — but for some, the work has just begun. After a Monday snow day for MSU and many other schools across the state, officials decided to "reopen MSU operations and classes at 12 p.m.":http://statenews.com/article/2014/01/msu-cancels-all-classes-before-noon-on-tuesday All morning classes are canceled, but afternoon courses and the highly-anticipated basketball game against Ohio State at Breslin Center will move forward as planned. It is the seventh time in school history that the university has closed and the second time it has closed for two consecutive days. The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids predicted the high temperature only will reach 6 degrees, and wind chills might reach as low as 25 degrees below zero. East Lansing felt the weight of more than a foot of snow throughout the weekend, leaving city and on-campus crews with a powdery mess to clean. The staff at MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities, or IPF, have worked nonstop since Sunday when the snowstorm hit in order to keep roads and sidewalks clear, prevent pipes from freezing and remove snow buildup. About 80 percent of campus was cleared of snow as of 11 a.m.

Students struggle to return to campus in severe weather conditions

Michigan's heavy snowfall has caused intense travel restrictions for students trying to make their way back to MSU. Everything from flights, trains, buses and car travel have been hampered by severe weather, often leaving people stuck in certain areas for extended periods of time. For economics junior Mike Fredendall who was traveling back by train from California, the weather made it nearly impossible to get back to Michigan. “Freight traffic delayed our first train into Chicago, so we missed our connecting train and had to take a train to Battle Creek,” Fredendall said.
