Hurricane Updates: No Classes Tuesday

We’re thankful to our western coast friends for praying for us, our parents for freaking out, and the Barnard security guards and kitchen staff that were asked to spend the night on campus in order to make sure we stay safe in the anarchy that inevitably accompanies natural disasters. But, if you’re like me, you woke up this morning with a hurricane-size hangover, bundled yourself up in blankets to make a trip to your window a few feet away, grunted in response to the hurricane “really not looking all that bad,” and elected to go back to sleep. But not after going through a few Facebook and Twitter updates and checking The Nine Ways of Knowing, of course.

UPDATE: For President Obama’s Hurricane Sandy statement Live, go here.
Also, no class tomorrow.
