Yes we d have a good amount of snow. More difficult, they say, for off campus students to drive, etc. Why I made it! Hahahaa. . .I live in another state even. . .!!! Grammama aka Mme Bouvier lives in "a quaint New England town" across the river from the campus, part of an also-quaint picturesque town. . . so I 'commute' driving down the street and across the bridge to the campus. . .
And I made it today. Lots of others did not. . .faculty and students. Tho I wouldn't make the trek home to The Dunes, I did want to get out of the house and "play in the snow". . . .no problems driving. The towns know how to drive trucks and plow roads. . ;-)
So I set up shoppe in my classroom to work there this morning, having arrived just about time my first class begins. Lo and behold!
some of my students moseyed on in, with backpacks and coffee. . like the survivors they are. . . so we had some informal chats and "hearings" about some important "matters of consequence". . . It was all very pleasant and fun.
