Ever wondered what the Holy Cross campus would look like with more than 100 inches of snow? Wonder no more.
As of this post, Mother Nature has dumped 112 inches of the white stuff on Worcester, making it the snowiest city in America (among U.S. cities with a population of 100,000 or more).
Despite snowstorms that haven’t relented since January (including a record-setting blizzard), the 2014-15 snowfall total hasn’t blown over the all-time record. That was set in 1995-96 when 132.9 inches besieged Worcester.
Whether a new all-time record will be set this year is anyone’s guess. What we’re sure of, however, is no matter how much of the powdery stuff we get, our always reliable — if not weathered — Facilities crew will have the campus (dug) up and running in no time.
Beautiful pictures, especially the night and overview ones.
In some pictures you really get the idea of how high the snow is piled along the walkways. I remember Holy Cross like this.
