Snow day closure – or not: Please pause before you shoot the messenger

February 7, 2014

Last Wednesday was quite an interesting day, and not just because of all the adventure we had with a snowstorm that turned out to be much worse than anticipated. The highlight of my day was reading the commentary on UTM’s Facebook page.

I was quite impressed with the linguistic creativity of our students and even learned a new expletive or two! My personal favorite among the comments was, “People who make decisions about closures need to be fired and replaced.” As that “people” would happen to be me, I thought I should fess up before someone innocent gets the boot.
