Another round of winter weather swept through Memphis Thursday afternoon, depositing 1-2 inches of snow, with sleet accumulation in some areas. Snow began falling shortly after midday and continued into the early evening. An emergency TigerText notified U of M students, faculty and employees of The University's 7:00 p.m. closing due to inclement weather. The Campus School, the elementary school located at U of M, was closed for today's classes. Students still on campus when the snow swept through basked in the bright glow of the snow covering the ground, and Wesley Witherspoon (bottom right), junior forward for the Tigers, took a break for an impromptu snowball fight with managers and teammates.
