Due to last nights flurries, Johnson University’s homecoming was threatened to cancel.
After watching the weather report and roads, the university decided to put regular classes on delay, but keep the main sessions on schedule. After awhile the roads seemed to clear up and become drivable again.
Johnson University still wishes to encourage caution to those commuting the event. Knoxville, Tennessee may still have on and off fluries the rest of the night, and a winter weather advisory will be in place until 4 p.m. this evening.
“We understand that not everyone will be able to make it,” Keck said. “But the show must go on. Whoever makes it will make it and whoever doesn’t, doesn’t.”
The first session is scheduled to open this evening at 7 p.m. A reception will follow directly after and at 9:15 p.m. the Council of Seventy will meet in Kevin O’Brien’s office.
Knoxville is averaging 85 percent humidity and tonight’s temperature will be dropping below freezing around 9 p.m., so there may be ice collecting on the roads before commuters retire for the night. A gentile breeze will also bring windchill, making it feel on average four degrees colder. All attending should dress for freezing temperatures.
