No school for two days? When I was in school we walked 10 miles through snow so deep we needed straws to breathe. And we liked it.:-D

Seriously, I don't recall classes ever being cancelled back in the 80s. Maybe it is just my bad memory.

We had a cancellation my senior year (2006-07) and I remember it being the first one in a decade or two.

I'm probably wrong, though.

Yep, that storm was ridiculous. First time Cornell closed since the infamous '93 blizzard, I believe.

In all seriousness, I don't think any sanctioned Cornell activities are allowed during a closure, not a great time to be missing practices...

It was Valentine's Day 2007. I had graduated, but was in town to visit my now wife. They didn't cancel classes until 12:30.

That makes sense. I knew there was a cancellation, but I also remembered walking home from campus and seeing kids sledding in college town.

Classes were canceled at least once when I was in school -- 68-72. Sledding down Stewart Avenue was amazing. Walking back up, not so much.

1993 Blizzard cancelled classes for the 1st time since 1971 (we were told). There was a storm in 1995 (or so) where all roads in Tompkins County were closed, but the school did not close. Two days later, Cornell retroactively closed so all the staff who were stuck sleeping on cots in university buildings could get paid OT, or something like that.

Closed in '66. Back then they were still on the stupid schedule where we went home for December break and then came back for a couple of weeks in January followed by exams. I did my first exams and had almost a week before my last exam. So having a car and being from outside Syracuse, I came home, never to make it back for the exam.

We got about 10 feet of snow and the only way I could get around was with our snowmobile. The snow was so high I could walk up to and on my roof. It took days before they brought in a huge snow blowing truck to open my road.

Fortunately the storm also hit Ithaca and CU was closed. I forget how long, but long enough to cancel the exam.

Much like the last 2 days here in Syracuse it was a lot of fun. You had limited options of what you could do, so you relaxed and just enjoyed the time.

Went to work the last 2 days and saw a total of 12 patients. The whole office was able to leave early. Fun!

From 2000 to 2004, we only had one hour off. And it was for a thing on the quad the day after 9/11; nothing was even cancelled on 9/11 itself. And nothing ever for snow.

I thought in 98 or 99 there was an afternoon of classes canceled for snow because Tompkins county closed roads, but not the whole day. It did cancel some evening prelims!

Pretty sure that was '99. I remember sitting in a government class when someone came in and told the professor that the university was closed because the roads were shut down. The professor looked at us and said, "You're all walking home, right?" and went on to lecture for the remainder of the period.

Students, faculty, even ordinary Americans used to walk more than two blocks a day - for transportation, not to look good. Plowing parking lots requires a whole lot more time, labor, space, and money than plowing sidewalks.
