Another Snowstorm Visits the Lehman Campus

Thursday saw another snowstorm bring heavy snow to the Lehman Campus. At one point, the visibility was reduced to near zero as an intense band dumping snow at a rate of 3”-6” per hour moved across the campus.


By the time the storm departed Friday morning before sunrise, just over a foot of snow had fallen on campus. All the trees and buildings were plastered with wet snow as the sun rose in the wake of the storm.
