Sorry students but I am not going to cancel class just because it is cold

Today I got a whole bunch of emails to see if I was still having class. The answer is yes. Sure it was freezing (-13 to be exact) and yes it sucks but if I cancelled class every time it was cold we would never have class. 

I sent an email to everyone saying that YES class was still on and YES points would be taken away if you were absent (you lose 2 points every time you dont come to class unless it is a documented emergency or something like that)

I got a whole bunch of emails back asking if my email was "for real" 

After wasting my time to email back to say yes it was "for real"

Ugh I hate teaching this course

Online classes are a great option

Especially for people not willing to go to class when it is cold lol

The only time I didn't show up when it was cold was when it was -40 and my car wouldn't start. I rarely missed class.

I hate you.  We had class when it was -15 out.  I had to walk 4 blocks from the garage to the restaraunt the school owns where we do hands on.  I thought my legs were going to fall off.

We have had this kind of weather for a week now and it will be for another week. Should I just skip two weeks of class?

I always assumed that if my school wasn't on the school closings list, then I would have classes.  Tell them to turn their cars on first to make the scraping easier.
