  • Digging out…

    After three major dumps of snow, it was time to move the lab vehicles so that the grounds crew could plow our section of parking lot. Also, good excuse to scrape the 2-ish feet of snow off the trucks that have accumulated in the past month 😳 . Thanks to everyone for helping dig out!
