Thus, class should be cancelled for the goodnesses of all students and faculties.
AccuWeather is reporting snow with temperatures hovering in the 20s for Tuesday morning, so it seems unlikely that the university will cancel or even delay classes.

Either way, I’ll be sleeping with my pajamas on inside out and a spoon under my pillow for the rest of the week.
