Rolls Down Hill...

Some days I wonder why my students write so badly, why they rely on such strange and shoddy logic. And then, every now and then, I see little things that suggest some possible excuse.

We're having a weather moment here today. I imagine lots of places are. For me, it isn't much of an ordeal since my grading is done, and I'm down to my own errands which can be completed in my own time. I'd intended to head up today, but I can read as well here, particularly since the roommate is gone. And since the weather's bad enough, there's no sense in being out. So imagine my joy when I saw this in my inbox:
Anticipating an improvement in current weather conditions, all university offices will close today (Friday, Dec. 19) at 1:30 p.m.
Yes, that's right. The weather is getting better, so we'll close things down. Is it any wonder my students struggle with making an argument?
