And I just got an e-mail from work containing this:
"Faculty, staff, residents/interns, graduate students should NOT come to work unless needed for essential functions."
And another with this (apparently they're covering their bases):
"At midnight, Feb. 2, [university] will switch to emergency procedures per the
university's emergency operations plan. Critical functions will be maintained, and only employees supporting those critical functions are expected to report to work Feb. 2."
The university has not cancelled classes since 1978 for snow (or so goes the rumor). They were cancelled before I left work.
I'm not sure when the last time they actually closed the university. These e-mails came at 6:30 and 6:31 tonight.
Now I just have my fingers crossed that we don't lose power at home.
Know what I'm going to do between checking work e-mail periodically?
