They closed the public schools, but (barring something strange, and an announcement at 8:30 tomorrow morning) the law school is not closing tomorrow.

I think both administrations are right. The storm track has shifted a tiny bit away from us, but there's still a lot of uncertainty. We're going to be ok in the morning, but there is an appreciable chance of road chaos in the afternoon, in the unlikely event Fay strengthens and zags. There's often no way for parents to hear about early closures of the schools while at work, nor to get their kids. Law students on the other hand are far less numerous, and generally self-propelled.

We can close the place a lot faster than a public school if we need to. And we probably won't need to. If anything Tuesday looks dicier than Monday, and that too is not looking so bad at present.

Folks in the Keys, or on the west coast of Florida seem to have more to worry about.

Meanwhile, on the home front, we've done almost all our laundry. But we'd have done than anyway.

    Good thing no one in the law school community has school-aged children! Seriously, you all are very much in the thoughts & prayers of South Florida ex-pats as you prepare for Fay.

    The law school’s email announcement yesterday did say that staff with childcare issues due to school closures should contact their supervisors. And, I’m sure that faculty will be tolerant of students who explain that’s why they miss class.

    Even I would accept that as a valid excuse.
