S N O W D A Y ! ! ! !

We got hammered last night for sure, with snow that is. The college actually closed early, dropping all the evening classes. This was both good and bad, as we didn't have class last Tuesday night due to a day of workshops. While it is good to be home with the family, I have students who will now be three weeks behind.

The college rarely closes, in the ten years I have been there, we have closed three times, two for weather and one on September 11, 2001. I had a conversation with a student about how she had to drive so far in this shitty weather and she asked, "what does it take to get this college to close?" I mentioned A LOT of snow and a terrorist attack.

She didn't look happy.

So today will be spent hanging out with the family, and possibly heading out to the Casacades to hit the slopes with Miss Anna. If the cable holds out, we'll catch up on TV and play the Wii. Life is good.
