      Little known fact that Harvard produces power and steam in a plant on the river for all their buildings, Pretty sure that it is not a solar plant…

        IU in Bloomington also has a coal fired steam plant. When I lived in McNutt quad we were down wind of it and the ash would rain down on our vehicles and damage the finish. A quick look reveals that nothing has changed much in the intervening 40+ years apparently.

          McNutt quad?

          I remember McNutt quad, the guys smuggled me in and I slept under the bed so the councilor checking the room didn’t see me.

          I was the only girl caver from my college on a trip to the Bloomington caves. There must have been eight or ten of us squashed into that room but it beat camping in the cold rain without tents.

          When I was there it was a co-ed dorm with all boy and all girl floors. No dorm counselor/Resident did checks on rooms unless there was a complaint. If I had it all to over again I would have paid for a single room instead of the double that I lived in. Or lived off campus.

          Across the street was Foster Quad. An all girl quad we called “The Nunary”. McNutt was high enough on the hill we could go to the roof and look down on Foster quad. A wonderful view during the hotter days when sunbathing was popular.

    In terms of February cold temperature anomalies, as of yesterday, Syracuse is the leader in the clubhouse, with -16.4. Not far behind is Cleveland at -15.2, Buffalo at -14.8 and Toledo at -14.6.
    With four more days of bitter cold forecast thru the end of the month, those anomalies are only going to get larger. Truly a historic cold month.

    There is another 30cms of snow outside waiting for me to shovel. Luckily its dry powder. Will this ever stop?

    It not just the quantity of new records, it is by how much the old records have broken by.
    Some have been broken by as much as 6 to 7 degrees. With Lynchburg VA apparently 18 degrees.

    Also in Canada as well, some broken by as much as 8 degrees C.

    Anyone heard from Man-Bear-Pig (minus the bear) Al Gore?
