57% of our poll takers haven't forgotten the Blizzard of '78, which shut down classes for four days. Dave Lavalle '79 worked for The Cigar at the time: "We were there every night, writing stories to try to tell everybody what was going on, but we couldn't get the vans out to get it printed and distributed." Trapped on campus, students stayed busy "traying" and building snow sculptures until classes (and the paper) finally resumed the next week. Were you ever snowbound at URI?
