Feb. 1 and 2 brought the worst snowstorm in the Chicago area since 1999. Through Tuesday afternoon and early into Wednesday morning 20.2 inches of snow were dumped on the city, leading to abandoned cars on Lake Shore Drive, street-blocking snow drifts and power outages throughout Dominican University.
Starting on Monday Jan. 31 the school began receiving calls from worried students and parents asking about the school’s plans for the upcoming blizzard. Thankfully, the Emergency Response Team (ERT) had a protocol plan that made the coming days a little bit easier.
