E-mails kept coming from my students asking about class tonight as may live far. I looked out and saw no sign of the weather improving and decided to cancel. Two and a half hours of math is not worth the risk of an accident. I didn't expect the school to close and felt I should look out for myself and my students. I called to let the school know and again heard "be safe."
I checked e-mails after 2 o'clock and found this message:
Due to the severe weather, all regularly scheduled classes and activities that begin at 4:30PM or later are cancelled for today, March 5, 2015. Additionally, Community College will close at 5PM.
I'm glad the powers that be at the college made a safe decision.
