Polar Vortex Shuts Down Michigan State For Second Day
A little bit of history was made yesterday as dangerously cold wind chills shut down operations at Michigan State University for only the seventh time in its history. Well, get ready for another record-breaker as officials with Michigan State University just announced that classes will be cancelled for a second day in a row due to the dangerously cold wind chills.
According to the announcement posted at msu.edu, "in response to the ongoing severe wind chills and poor road conditions university modified operations and class suspension will continue through Jan. 31, 2019. Only critical employees should report to work on Jan. 31. Normal operations are expected to resume on Friday, Feb. 1 at 1 a.m."

The first time classes were cancelled at MSU was way back in 1967.
