I remember as a high school senior, my sister was a freshman at Kent, and I knew she'd be out in it. There were several hours during the afternoon when we could not call into Kent, Ohio; that was bad. Later, my right-wing dad and I got in the car and drove 4 hours to pick her up in the middle of the night, helicopters hovering over the campus.
