I thought about going in. I never take off. But just walking out to get my newspaper convinced me to stay home. The streets are sheets of ice. There is no way to safely get to the bus stop although it is just across the street. I worry about the block I have to walk from the bus to the school and the streets I have to cross. I love my students but I love having intact limbs more.
