The winter season may become shorter, but storms and floods will hit the East Coast harder than ever due to climate change, Edmund K.M. Chang, a professor in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University, hypothesized in a study on winter storms.
After having all five opening games canceled last weekend, Stony Brook Softball traveled to Colorado in search of a delayed but successful start to its 2019 campaign. Instead, inclement weather washed three more ball-games from the Seawolves schedule at the Colorado State Classic, leaving the team with a pair of losses suffered on Friday, March 1.
Over the past few weeks, Stony Brook University made efforts to remove snow from walkways and roadways across campus. Despite those efforts, though, some students feel the residential buildings have inaccessible or slippery entrances.
Too soon has October been prematurely suffocated by tight jeans or congested with hoodies. Sweatpants work like saunas at the first mention of the word “fall,” and long-sleeved shirts initiate insulation as soon as the leaves brown. The advent of autumn is inaccurately viewed as the point of no return for temperatures above 70. And thus the sacrifice of comfort for style is untimely, unfortunate and unnecessary.
