school is canceled!?!

I just received an email from Columbia telling me that school is canceled because of snow.* But only after 3. I teach in 10 minutes. Do I hold class for 50 minutes? I decided to “cancel” class — telling students they didn’t have to come (really) — but also teach it (as I’m here anyway, and will be away next week giving a talk**). Is that ridiculous of me? My time in the classroom is so short that I feel bad not being there. I wonder if the time will come that I simply won’t care.

* I think this is wise. Not for me or the students, who all live around here. But for the staff who do not, and who likely have to drive.

**If you’re in Philly, come! It’s Wednesday, noon, at Penn sociology.
