Dashing through the snow

Central Illinois is well on its way to setting a record for cold and snow this winter and the weather conditions are testing the endurance of many students, faculty and staff on the UIS campus. With about eight inches of new snow, blustery winds and very cold temperatures, we cancelled classes earlier this week for one day. There is one group on campus, however, that did not miss a beat despite the weather conditions. That group was our amazing grounds crew who cleared roads, sidewalks, and building entrances quickly and efficiently so that the rest of us could get around. I so appreciate the efforts of Joan Buckles, Brian Beckerman and the entire grounds crew who do such a great job all of us! I'm sure spring is on the way; but in the meantime – thank you all!
