Snow at University Union

Photos: Wintry mix leaves campus gorgeous, again

It’s not great for travelers, and the UW-Green Bay community had to negotiate slippery sidewalks and parking lots, but the brutal wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow, once again left UW-Green Bay campuses in a wintry splendor. Photographer Dan Moore snapped a few photos…

Snow-removal crews get the job done

Main roads were plowed, parking lots were being cleared and most campus paths have been swept as of 7:15 a.m. today (Tuesday, Dec. 29) on the UW-Green Bay campus, although much work was still under way. Caution is advised for pedestrians: surfaces are very slick and not all surfaces have been sanded or salted yet. Main city streets to campus were plowed and passable this morning. (The National Weather Service at Austin Straubel in Green Bay registered 13 inches of snow as of this morning.) As always, UW-Green Bay’s winter storm policy directs individual students and employees to make their own decisions about travel, as conditions vary across the region. Employees should communicate with their supervisors and arrange to use vacation time if necessary.

Close-ups: Blanketed by beauty

top-winter-scenesFrom ground level, or bird’s eye view, UW-Green Bay is blanketed in beauty. Although we can almost bet that there is more snow (and incredible images) to come, campus student photographers Sam Zingsheim and Lauren Hlavka take us back to the first significant snowfall of November 2014 with these campus snapshots.

Yes, a parking ‘snow emergency’ in late March!

Sure, the snow is melting, but in areas not plowed after last week’s record snowfall because they were parked end-to-end with student vehicles, those crusty drifts and snow/ice patches are remarkably persistent. That’s why our facilities and parking people have declared a campus emergency for both Tuesday and Wednesday (March 29 and 30). Of special interest to faculty, staff and visitors: On Wednesday, March 30 the entire Studio Arts parking lot will be closed for parking until all snow removal vehicles have left the lot. It’s also worth noting that, on both days, other parking lots will fill up faster. Reminder: There’s a potential $50 Snow Emergency citation in play, so look for signage, barricades and snow-removal crews. Contact Parking with any questions at 465-2301 or parking@uwgb.edu.
