As far as I remember in the past ten years we never had two days off because of heavy snow. The campus usually closes for one day to give the city time to clear the snow from the streets. This week, the campus closed for two consecutive days because of the snow storm. I copied the following from the university’s website:
Storm shuts down campus for eighth time in Mizzou’s 175-year history.
So yesterday was our second day off. Because I can’t stay at home I decided to walk to the down town which is about two miles from where I live. The walk wasn’t easy because there was so much snow, I had to walk on the street because the sidewalk was not cleared yet. You can see here some pictures of the first day of snow.
