NOTES ON: WINTER STORM JUNO

Winter Storm Juno

Boston was blanketed in approximately three feet of powder today, and the students at Northeastern University embraced every inch of it.

As a resident assistant in WVE, I felt it my responsibility to venture into the arctic tundra that the quad had quickly become to step up as the unofficial West Village family historian. I quickly protected my camera in a few layers of plastic wrap (lol actually) and embarked on a quest across campus for some candid camera treasures.

In less than 24 hours, campus had become a winter wonderland, and West Village E was certainly no exception. For the first time all day, the winds had finally let up enough for people to venture outdoors.

These guys braved the blizzard all afternoon so those of us without skis or snowboards at the ready could make it down the dreaded WVE stairs in one piece. They seemed to be having a good time despite the cold! What would West Village even do without our knights in shining neon?

….as you can see, probably never escape West Village! Snow was piled high around Wollaston’s, and countless students had actually broken out their skis and snowboards.

These girls, on the other hand, made themselves at home on a completely different level, kicking back in a fort some students had constructed outside of West Village C.

Students braved the West Village wind tunnel for a chance to play in the snow, which the school had to use bobcats, dumps, and plows to control.

Football in the snow was easily the crowd favorite by Centennial. Note: Hired professionals were of course available to cross-check the pressures of all footballs used by Huskies during blizzard playtime.
