You know your mom is from Michigan when four inches of snow fall overnight, and she doesn't even entertain the thought that there'd be a snow day, but instead dresses you in your uniform and barrels into the parking lot of school, wondering where the hell everyone is.
You know your professor is from Michigan when all of the city schools are closed, but she can't entertain the thought that campus could be closed too, and instead barrels down Market, and rather than turning around when she sees that the only other vehicle in the primo lot belongs to her favoritest colleague, rejoices at the thought of parking right next to him. And oh, where are all of the students, the professors, the staff?
Only the most devoted are reporting for duty today, or the most behind and in need of serious uninterrupted time. Or a combination thereof.
Has this been a particularly bad winter for other folks? This is the second day we've had classes cancelled, and the third snow day for the kids. What gives?
