Did You Know…that Penn closed at 2 pm yesterday and is closed today due to inclement weather (snow)? Many of you may remember calling the Penn weather line as a student to see if school was closed. If you’d like to listen to the official announcement, just like you did as a student, you can call (215) – 898 – MELT.
It was nice to see Mayor Michael Nutter, W’79, wearing a Penn baseball cap as he declared a snow emergency for the City of Philadelphia.
A colleague wrote about 898-MELT during Penn’s most recent snow day on January 3rd. You can read that here.
Since campus is closed, I’m not seeing many pictures posted of the snow, but The DP has one, and there’s a few on Penn’s Instagram account. I’m sure we’ll see many pretty photos of campus once everyone returns (hopefully tomorrow).
