The Storm of ’19 dumped eight to 12 inches of snow last Friday afternoon, according to the Post-Dispatch. Forecasts throughout the week had shown increasingly worse probable conditions, and Principal Ian Gibbons, S.J. announced that school would be a half day during homeroom Friday morning. At 12:15, the St. Louis U. High campus was nearly evacuated, and athletic contests and club activities were postponed or canceled. Whenever snow is predicted or falls, the administration has to take precautions before making hasty decisions.
