When I registered for the stats course this semester I spoke to the professor prior to classes starting and we discussed how many classes I would attend.
I had tried to do the course by correspondence and it just didn't work for me and so I knew I needed to be in class as often as possible.
Driving from my home to where the class was offered meant driving through the Pine Pass. In September and early October we knew that this would not be a problem, but from mid October the potential existed that driving through the pass would not be a good idea. We left it "open" to discuss as the weather permitted, how many classes I would attend and what accommodations we would make down the line if needed.
Well the weather has been really good. This past weekend was the second last time I had to make the drive and for my final exam I will stay at home and use a proctor for the exam.
I drove to class in fantastic weather, the sky was clear, it was sunny and the roads were great.
