Weekend snow falls with minimal disruptions

Students make their way across Polk Place, above, as the 6 inches of sleet and snow that blanketed campus Jan. 29–30 provide a quiet interlude between the work that Facilities Services’ buildings and grounds crews did to prepare for the storm and to clean up afterwards. The photo below at right shows the Grounds Department’s Chris Carideo filling a 300-gallon tank with salt brine in anticipation of a snowfall that didn’t materialize earlier in the month. The brine application – intended to prevent the formation of bonded snow and ice for easier removal – was repeated on campus roads and sidewalks Jan. 28–29. Below at left, a member of the grounds crew works to clear a parking lot near Hamilton Hall Feb. 1.
