Johns Hopkins University was closed Monday and Tuesday as the region continued to dig out from a winter storm that dropped record-breaking snowfall in Baltimore and beyond over the weekend.
Some 30 inches of snow had accumulated across much of the region by Sunday morning, burying cars and campus walkways alike and rendering most roads unpassable. The 29.2 inches measured at BWI airport were the most from a single storm there since record keeping began in 1883.
The long process of digging out commenced Sunday and was expected to last for days. But that didn't stop many Johns Hopkins students from venturing out to explore the winter wonderland. Nor did it deter the many essential staff members who worked through the storm—in dinning halls and libraries, on the grounds and in residence halls—to make sure students were safe and comfortable.
