Anyjuan else remember getting snow while attending CU?


Posted: Jan 4, 2018 11:24 AM
 

I think it was maybe 2003? We got snow and stole cafeteria trays from Shilleter or whatever the dining hall was called, and used them as sleds over there by Hartwell. Good times.

It was the best! Snowball fight then find a warm bar to thaw. Then more snowball fights. Best vantage point was on top of TTT.

Worst was when the ice came. Busted my ice going down steps to library.


I was there in 2003

And I, too, took a tray from schilletter and slid down hills

I've been lucky and we have had snow days at least once the past 5 years. My freshman year we had two separate snow days and I had a test pushed back three weeks.

Flew home to VT for the holidays and had a green Xmas. Flew into Greenville airport 1st week of Jan and there was an inch of snow on our car. Also had a 4 inch storm later in Jan or Feb. No trays left in the cafeteria.

Yes! I believe it was '95 and we slid down the hill behind the shoeboxes. Good times!

The shoeboxes were definitely the place to do a little

sliding into things. It got very slippery, very often in there. Many a virginity lost.

You were in the shoeboxes in 2003? I lived in Geer then, what about you?


By 2003 I was in McCabe

I was in the shoes in 2002. I didn't bang you, though. If that's what you're worried about.


January of 1989 (or 1988) we got close to 20" in Clemson***

Yep. I remember that. Plenty of bread and milk but NO beer in the convenience stores. Spent many hours in TTT. Man, that was a GREAT few days.


88. At the tiger mart across from Riggs field

An employee didn't show up for work because of the snow, the clerk on duty left when his shift ended leaving the store open and unattended for hours. All the beer was looted. True story. Good times

I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.


Yes - in the mid-70s when I was in school we had snow.......

Posted: Jan 4, 2018 11:58 AM
 

and such a cold snap that the reflection pond in front of the library froze over to where people were skating on it - looked like a real skating rink.

The funny thing was seeing the people from "warm climates" who had never actually seen snow before.

Yup, January '77...never got above freezing the entire month. Pretty crazy...watching the fire department spray the pond down each evening to smooth the ice as best possible. To this day, I wonder where all the skates came from! LOL!


I remember that there was a group of students or some.......

business in Clemson who went down to Atlanta and got a bunch of skates to rent.

Funny you should mention people who never saw snow before. My wife was the head resident in Johnstone A section when I was getting my masters. We had two students from Jamaica. They had never seen snow and were afraid to go outside.


Used to walk to class in the snow, uphill, both ways.***

Snowed in 1990. Accidently hit my buddy in his face on Bowman and broke his glasses.

One year the pool in front of the library froze and people were ice skating.

I've lived in Clemson since 1955 and never saw a 20" snow. The most we ever had was about 10" - 12". One year the mid and lower state areas got as much as 24" -28" and not a snowflake in Clemson.

Got mine this year! My first semester here last December. Pretty memorable. My first day of class at Clemson was a solar eclipse and my one of my last was snow.

About 15” in late March 1971. Had just got married. My new wife had just graduated nursing school and was working at Seneca Hospital. She got stuck there for multiple shifts and the national guard finally brought her home in a deuce and half covered troop transport. She about froze but took it in stride. Knew I married a winner.


In '65-'66 - either Dec or early Jan,

living in Deacs frat building. Worst snowball fight in history between frats. Saw a snow{actually ice)ball make a circular hole through the window on landing in stairwell in dorm that hit a guy in the chest so hard he couldn't get his breath. Made a huge bruise. Wasn't safe to venture outside.

We got some snow in 98 or 99. Got trays from Harcomb. Of course, we put 4 trays under each of the 4 legs of a couch and built a huge ramp at the bottom of the Dyke nearest Esso. Those were some of the best wipe outs ever!!

Getting that couch back to the top was no fun though...

Sounds about right. Living in University Village at that time. Went to Ingles for beer. Good times.


Yes. 1996. There was a huge snowball fight in the quad


Posted: Jan 4, 2018 8:04 PM
 

Fraternities, sororities, or non affiliated did not matter. Everyone was having a blast until a streaker came through and with nothing on but a stocking cap with a puff ball on top. Every single person there IMMEDIATELY turned their attention and snowball throughing to him. He got pelted over and over til he made it inside and the streaker was running as fast as he could and laughing just as hard as everybody else.

January/February 1979. Emptied Harcomb of their trays. Slid down the hill at Clemson House. One guy slid down the hill into a cop car. He was cuffed and jailed. Bombarded the police with snowballs for that

Yes, the winter of 1979 was my favorite. Death

Valley was open due to the fact they had some finishing touches still needed on the new south side upper deck.

About a dozen of us walked from B-5 Johnstone down to Death Valley and played a game of tackle football in a heavy snowstorm (snowed about 9 inches that day). Great memories!

After reading the first page of comments I started thinking "Am I the oldest guy on this thread?" Then started seeing the 70's students chime in. We were told in January 77 that it was the first time the University had closed due to snow since the 1950s - but I never heard if that was true or not. I was a frat guy too. Someone bought a keg and that day was a blast. I actually still have pictures taken that day. Fond memories


Yes, I was a freshman in 1977. I remember the talk about

Clemson University not being closed due to snow for a long time, until 1977.


Re: Anyjuan else remember getting snow while attending CU?

1977 snowed bigtime


Yes. January 1987.


Posted: Jan 7, 2018 5:41 PM
 

and I was pelted by snowballs while exiting me dorm.


Late March/early April of '72--snowed 10" or 11"


Posted: Jan 7, 2018 6:18 PM
 

you could see the very tops of fully grown jonquils all over campus.

Having a VW bug with the engine in the back pretty much compensated not having expensive 4-wheel drive but it did put ya in the taxi biz. Had to leave around lunchtime to drive to Atlanta for a friend's pre-wedding shenanigans.....the trip down I-85 was fun---especially around the Toccoa exits.
