Snow Day

Spent the morning preparing for class only to learn that campus is closed due to snow. Only "employees who have been designated as essential personnel are expected to report to work," making me think I can stay home. (There is a joke in there about essentialist personnel, but I won't make it.)

The snow seems to have brought about some hasty composition, which I love, and it's understandable. This post titled "Employee Guidelines Related to Severe Weather" discusses who needs to go to work, and then jerkingly transitions to what seems to be another document? The rupture reads:
A decision regarding classes and operations for tomorrow, February 14th will be made later today and shared with the media and posted on the uiuc.edu website.

Election as a fellow is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. This year 449 members were elevated to this rank because of their efforts to advance science or its applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.

"Illinois students are truly fortunate to learn from and work alongside professors such as these," said Richard Herman, the chancellor of the Urbana campus. "Through their research and teaching, these faculty members are pioneering the future of science, and passing on their knowledge and love of learning to a new generation of scientists."
