On one hand it surprises me that the university decided to stay closed again today. We walk to work and even walked to campus in the middle of the blizzard, so getting to work is never much of a concern for us. Plus our road has been cleared immediately following (and sometimes during) every snow we’ve had this winter.
On the other hand, though, I understand that not everyone has the cleared road or close distance to work that we enjoy, so travel can be a lot more challenging.
Overall, though, I’m appreciative that the university values the safety and well-being of its 12,000 employees, and would rather pay us to stay home than worry about us killing ourselves trying to get to work. Not everyone is so fortunate.
We’ve been making the most of our time at home, working on projects we’ve been wanting to do for years, and loving every minute of it.
