8+” and a whole lot of downed branches throughout campus. We will be cleaning up from this for quite some time.

Stay safe out there if traveling over the next several hours. Conditions are getting interesting out there throughout the Bluegrass!

It’s currently Sunny & mid 50’s. Calling for 4.5” of snow overnight into the morning hours. Typical central KY weather. We were mowing last Friday......


Busy day for the crew. Aerated X2 at Berea Softball. Seeded several acres of the main campus that were aerated over the weekend & we started mulching several of the landscape beds throughout campus. #SpringBreak2018
