Forty years ago today…

… it snowed in Davis!

The January 1973 edition of the UC Davis Spectator noted “Snow flurries for half a day on Jan. 8 pushed vacation-rested students into building snowmen and ’snoopies’ and doing battle with snowballs on the quadrangle and elsewhere.”

Do you remember this snow event or others in Davis?

The image below is from the University Archives Photographs Collection.
