... I'm trying hard to be jealous. You see, BNCC has only closed for snow once in the last 6 years... and that was a Friday I wasn't teaching. It doesn't matter if all the area K-12 schools are closed or if the students complain -- we kind of pride ourselves on being brave souls etc...
Of course, I suspect the real reason is that the administration thinks faculty have too many sick/personal days and want to make us either fake being sick or simply use a personal day in order to cancel class -- so they won't call a snow day.
Of course, the fact that I'm in San Diego and planning on having a beach afternoon, after the conference -- that it will be 77 and sunny tomorrow -- and that I'll be wearing shorts and sandals -- makes it more difficult for me to be jealous.
Also, the forecast is that - when I get home -- my sweet home state will actually be above freezing for the first time since before Christmas, so even then I'll be in a relative heat wave.
Really, y'all need to develop an interest in military ethics so you can have a reason to come to this conference next year --- the last weekend in January, San Diego -- you can write paper and come... right?
