Snow Cancels My Class
The college did not cancel classes tonight but I canceled mine. I didn't want to go out in this weather. While we are lucky and our block gets plowed often, we are not so lucky because all the snow ends up in front of my driveway and I had my doubts about ever getting back in. I did consider the bus, but it will be even colder and very icy later. Some of my students live quite a distance and attendance would have been light. I don't know how much teaching would have been done and I didn't feel right risking the safety of the die-hards who never stay home.
Working in the college is a delight. A one-click system let me notify all my students and a secretary cheerfully answered the phone when I called in and told me I made a wise decision.
I am so happy not to be dealing with the DOE anymore.
