Because the forecast for February 5 includes a significant risk of more severe weather, faculty, staff and student organizations may wish to shut down their computers and printers. If we have a serious electrical interruption, shutting down will minimize damage.
For students and instructors in evening classes: The Law Library has a weather
radio at the Circulation Desk. If you wish to check on the forecast, the radio is always on.
