What happens before, during and after it snows at Western?

Winter weather has arrived, and Facilities Management Director John Furman wants campus to know what to expect at Western Washington University when snow and ice are on the ground.

"As weather systems approach, Facilities Management spends a lot of time monitoring various weather forecasts as we try to put together a 'best guess' about how the system or storm will affect the Western campus," he writes in his latest issue of "Desk Notes." "We are aware of the fact that employees and students commute from a variety of locations in Whatcom and Skagit counties, but we also have to make sure the 4,000 or so students who live on campus have continued access to dining services and other key facilities."
