Volume 90, Issue 69

Tuesday, January 28, 1997




On Jan. 28, 1994 The Gazette reported that the previous day would be remembered as the night Western chilled out and stayed home.

The university was closed for only the 10th time in its history as weather conditions froze most of its operations in their tracks – including night classes which were cancelled.

A steady rain which began in the early afternoon froze the ground into sheets of ice as temperatures dropped. By afternoon, traffic had slowed to a crawl and at about 6 p.m. Western president George Pedersen pulled the plug.

However, both The Spoke and The Wave remained open for business as usual.
