Another Snow Day

Thursday, March 5, 2015

Can you believe this snow?  I live in New Jersey and work at CW in White Plains, NY.  The snow this winter has been especially interesting.  It comes in time for us to close schools in the morning, in order for students, faculty and staff to be safe.  The snow has certainly been plentiful this season.  And, even though it is beautiful, I am ready for Spring.  Faculty, instructors and professors have been conducting classes remotely and students are able to attend without the messy commute.
