Battening Down the Hatches

It's official:

The University of Miami's Coral Gables and Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campuses will be closed for classes on both Thursday and Friday, September 2 and 3.

Only essential employees are required to report to work at the Coral Gables and Rosenstiel School campuses.

And I am not an “essential employee”. So I don't have to come in. But I'm on leave, so I don't have to come in anyway. Wait, there's more…

All academic buildings must be vacated by noon on Thursday. All non-essential buildings will be closed and secured at noon on Thursday.

Translation: If I come in they may kick me out of my office?

A decision on the UM-FSU football game, currently scheduled for Monday, September 6, is expected to be made on Thursday.

If they cancel a football game, then you know it's really serious. Update: They postponed it.

The following Coral Gables campus facilities will be open on Thursday until 5 p.m.:

* Food Court (and all Residential College Dining Rooms)
* Richter Library
* University Bookstore
* Student Health Center
* Wellness Center
* University Center
* Starbucks

I guess the people at Starbucks are essential employees.

    Not just a football game! If they cancel the UM-FSU football game, it starts moving into the realm of truly catastrophic.
