The ice storm that froze a huge chunk of North Georgia couldn’t freeze the spirits on the historic Gainesville campus despite cutting the school off from power.

Brenau Chefs AB Bailey and Tony Rojas kept the students well fed sans power cooking inside by flashlight and using the smoker outside. The Yonah Dinning Hall was not completely without power and remained open as a temporary student center where people could charge phones and warm up.

Crews worked all night on Monday and throughout Tuesday clearing fallen limbs and continued working into the night on Tuesday to restore power.
