Am heading up to North Bay this morning, about four hours’ – you guessed it – north of here. I checked the weather of course – light snow falling, clearing later. Around minus 9, all day.
Then I looked out our kitchen window, for a sort of home-grown weather report – and there was our car, covered with a thin frosting of icing sugar, and more falling from the great big sugar-shaker in the sky.
So I expect a frosty reception, up in North Bay – apart from the chill, the university has just made redundant ten senior administrators. And what will I be doing? Running a pair of meetings to finalise the scoring of academic indicators, reflecting the ‘relevance’, amongst other things, of the university’s departments and programmes. Easy, eh?
So remind me – how did I get into this?
