Another lesson on the bottom line

March 5 Weather

A quick story…I was working from home on slides for a presentation this afternoon. As I got ready to head to campus, my phone alerted me to a text message from a co-worker:

This state needs to invest in trucks. And salt. Maybe I’ll see you tomorrow!

It took a minute, but I finally figured out the campus was closing because of winter weather. (AGAIN….sigh)

I thought it was odd that I hadn’t seen the customary email announcement.  Then I remembered I had just deleted an email about a “winter weather advisory.” I recovered it from my Trash folder and edited the bottom line placement as recommended by research–and (un)common sense.

Happy Thursday from Tuscaloosa, where we have icy roads today after 80 degree temperatures yesterday!

  1. How true. I just received this email from one of my 5:00 class students:

    Did the University cancel classes tonight? The email that was sent out was not clear and I want to clarify it.

    I think I’ll send my own message out, with the bottom line at the top, where it belongs!
