I’ll take 2 feet of snow over a tornado any day
I think this is the entrance to campus off Hardy Street.
Prayers up for all in the path of this weather pattern.

Amen to that. I cannot imagine what they are going through right now.
Did Chad Myers of CNN blame the tornado on the “lack of ice” in the Arctic? Seriously, my prayers are up for everyone affected by the storm. I know you can’t judge a tornado’s winds by the funnel shape, but I wouldn’t be surprised by see that one rated as an EF-3.
Word is none of the dorms on campus were hit, just academic buildings.
