    Any other students happy about this? Sure Hurricane Ike is going to cause billions of dollars in damage but you get a whole day you didn't have before. So my question is this, how are you going to spend your day off from work- I mean school?


    I'm going to spend my day off catching with my precal homework/studying, since it's my hardest course. (yup, i'm a nerd) icon_twisted.gif

    Only if you have electricity to study with. Hurricanes are not a walk in the park, bud. And let's hope the nerd does not have to bury a family member

    Uh... why would school be canceled in College Station, more than 300 miles from the coast?

    While it is totally justified for coastal counties to impose mandatory evacuations, I think some of the inland areas of Texas are taking advantage a bit.

    it's only about 150 miles, and currently hurricane force winds are extending 115 miles from the center of the storm, You can be sure they will get sustained winds of 50 - 60 MPH if not greater, and large amounts of rain and flooding.
    It's probably safer to not have all those people going out in all that weather, plus forcing people to travel if roads are flooded is just a lawsuit waiting to happen (in in sue happy, take no responsibility for your own actions country)

    I have a friend at Sam Houston State (in Huntsville, about the same distance from the coast), and they are also canceled tomorrow

    Ouch! No electricity is going to put a cramp in my plans but that's what books are for. Burying family members? I don't deny that it's a rare possibility but i've learned to accept the passage of life into death. My grandparents both died a year back and then my grandma... it's fine to mourn but you can't let grief control the rest of your life, can you?

    I'm still glad I have an extra day to study and thanks for all the on topic posts'! icon_biggrin.gif

    Is anyone evacuating??
    I already had plans to be in LA on sunday to see a friend and I was trying to bump my flight up for tonight or tomorrow morning but there is now nothing available til Sunday AM....So I guess I'll leave as scheduled.
    I'll be stuck in Houston for the storm.. Not too sure what I'm in for as I've only ever experienced hurricanes up north (which are far weaker than what happens in the south..)
    I'm on the 4th floor so I'm not too worried. I'm hoping my flight on Sunday doesn't get pushed back cuz of cancellations.
    It should be an interesting few days that's for sure..

    Wow, I'm glad you're happy....meanwhile, my Mom and most of my family are probably not going to have a home to return to after Saturday...A home I grew up in right on Galveston Bay.

    I find no joy in your day off from school.
