Basically there was a bad storm and now everything is icy. Lots of people in town lost power and some trees fell down around the place.
"Because of ongoing weather conditions, downed trees and widespread power outages in the area, I encourage employees and students to use their own judgment about whether to travel to campus for work or to attend class."
This is part of a long as email we got saying don't go to class if you cant make it. Classes after 5pm were cancelled on Thursday and lots we cancelled during the day, as well as today (Friday). None of which were mine, so lucky I studied for my calculus test.
