I just noticed that my last post was on August 8th!! Wow – what a slacker! I have been really busy with Welcome Week, and classes started yesterday. I will post pictures from Welcome Week later but you can read part of the story here: [deleted for security]
Now, on to the update on Ernesto. He apparently cannot decide if he wants to be a tropical storm or a hurricane, but it is leaning toward tropical storm at this point. Offices on campus will be closed on Wendesday, but will reopen Thursday if we have power. The storm should come through this area in the middle of the night Tuesday/Wednesday or early Wednesday morning. As of now, students will be staying in the residence halls. I went to the store last night, and I have plenty of water and supplies. I am ready!!
