I was very excited to learn that I am not actually at the snowiest law school. That honor goes to Syracuse!
While it seems like everyone in the Midwest and on the East Coast is dealing with their fair share of snow and winter weather this year, living in a perpetually snowed-in town does have interesting implications for land use decisions. Wandering around AALS in blizzard conditions this year reminded me that many cities don't have ample storage space for snow. As soon as November rolls around here in Buffalo, the campus closes off designated spaces (certain staircases, walkways, parking spaces) that are given over to snow repositories.
Hey, I'll still take snow over cold. Sorry Minnesota.
