The Big Picture: Pile It On!

Locals were inventing terms like “Snowpocalypse” and “Snowmageddon” to describe the twin blizzards that pounded Baltimore with a historic amount of snow and shut the city down for several days in February. The two storms together dumped 51.7 inches of flakes on the Homewood campus, doing their part to make this winter the snowiest on record. Classes were canceled for a full week, an unprecedented event that Johns Hopkins’ serious-minded students managed to endure. (Maybe they liked it a little.)
