It took days for Marylanders to shovel themselves out of one of the largest snowstorms in the history of the state, but classes finally began Wednesday at Salisbury University.

After having the first two days of the semester off, SU has already used its two off-days built into its schedule for inclement weather. According to Jamie Holmes-Kriger of the SU Registrar Office, under the University System of Maryland, individual institutions can choose to use reading day or a Saturday if they were to have another inclement weather closing.

“The Provost will make this decision with input from the Dean,” Holmes-Kriger told The Flyer.

Still in the month of January, more winter weather figures to be on the way. According to weatherdb.com, Salisbury averages 3.3 inches of snow each February. In addition, a strong El Niño current in the Pacific Ocean could continue to bring above-average amounts of precipitation to the state in the coming months.
