So, I woke up after a 1/2 night of work and didn't bother looking outside to check the weather before I got ready....I'm headed out the door at 30 mins before class and am smacked by 6" on top of my car/drive/sidewalk, and more flakes falling thickly every second....So, I start car, scrape, and call classmates who are sure to have heard about cancelled classes...no one's heard a thing! I make the drive in 35 mins...usually about 10. Get there, then go to class, have lunch, go to afternoon lecture, take required dosage calc test (BTW, I passed with 100%!!! WHOOT!), then leave. It snowed all day...another 4 inches in those 3.5 hours...bad roads, no plows at all on any side roads.....RRGGHHH!! So, after all that, found out they closed campus at 4-5PM! Thanks a lot!
The HS were at least smart enough to send students home by noon.....

Welcome to the world of grown-up higher education. There are some colleges that will close at the first word of possible bad weather, and the majority of the rest that will stay open until they don't have any other possible choice! The university I used to attend was notorious for not closing unless they knew they'd have to break out the cots and freeze-dried meals!!

My school was open yesterday but, we didn't get flakes at all until around 9 am. I am also in Chicago but, my university is North of the loop. All said and done my area only got a few inches.
However I REALLY feel for my classmates who have an hour's drive in good weather to their suburban homes! YIKES.
