Awesome advice outweighs music for one day

Richard Kelly

By now everyone should know I live and breathe music. All types and any types.

But for this blog post, I’m going to mix things up and keep it simple. All the music talk is great, but something more important is on my mind…………………………

PLEASE CLOSE Washburn University for Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2011.

We’d all be safer in our beds at home, regardless of where that may be for many numerous reasons. I don’t want Washburn getting sued.

Consider this the best advice you’ve ever gotten.


*UPDATE 1 p.m. February 1, 2011*

Washburn University Vice President of Academic Affairs Rick Anderson and Vice President of Administration and Treasury Randy Pembrook made the announcement early this morning that school had closed, other than for essential personnel.

Now, with the expected 8 to 11 inches of snow and the subzero wind chills for much of today and tomorrow, here’s to hoping Wednesday brings us another day of no classes.

Dangerous conditions are going to be a definite tonight and tomorrow.

Be careful out there everything.

P.S. Don’t forget to protest if we have school tomorrow. Peacefully of course.

*UPDATE 6:23 P.M. February 1, 2011*

The University of Kansas has closed its doors for Wednesday and looking outside, I suggest we do the same.

I’d rather not get hypothermia or frostbite.

While I’m thinking of music though, check out Decoder. Their music reminds me of winter, with sounds reminiscent of Circa Survive, newer Oceana, and Brand New. The ambience and intensity combined make a connection to winter’s beautiful snow and harsh winds.

Regardless, I may not leave to go anywhere tomorrow. Some may call it weak, but when your governor decides to close state offices, university doors should be closed as well.

Plus, I haven’t done homework. Everyone likes extra time to not fail, right?
