The winter that began with very little snow, and the first serious snow of late January giving way to warmer temperatures in DeKalb than in Silicon Valley on at least one day.

The commuters were not pleased with headquarters deciding to call Tuesday classes off from 12.30 on. The residential students used Facebook to organize a snowball fight.
