Cold, Snow & Ice Greet Students Returning from Spring Break

Winter storms and hazardous driving conditions delayed the return to school for dozens of Northwood students on Sunday. According to Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs Mrs. Walker, forty-four students did not return to school on time because of delayed or cancelled flights and bad roads. Thirteen students had still not returned by the start of classes Today. Many of Monday’s classes were half-full and the paths between dormitories and classroom buildings were slippery.

Students returned from two weeks of spring break expecting to see open water on Mirror Lake and grass on the lacrosse fields. Instead, the crew team is training on ergs and the lax teams will practice in the field house for at least another week, and probably longer.

Weather in Lake Placid during the recent weekend consisted of snow, ice and freezing temperatures, and snow and below-freezing temps are expected through the weekend. High temperatures are not expected to top 50 degrees until the middle of next week.
