There being no 6 AM all-campus text this morning, classes go on at Wesleyan. Snow and ice on the ground, snow and ice in the air (and ice storm warnings in the forecast). No word as of yet on operating hours or event cancellations.
Meanwhile, the City of Middletown has declared a state of emergency. From last night:
Mayor Sebastian Giuliano has declared a state of emergency starting at 9 p.m. this evening. The mayor anticipates the forecasted snow and icy conditions may cause extended power outages throughout the city. A city-wide parking ban is currently in effect.
Reading this, I realize I’ve always thought of state of emergencies as referring to States, but that wouldn’t make a lot of sense (you don’t see “town of emergency,” much less “‘bury“).
Also at the Middletown Press, MiddletownEye blog founder Ed McKeon ruminates on our winter of discontent, and suggests we turn to Dar Williams ’89‘s “February.” Right on:
Here’s to hoping we make it through February.
