I had been thinking of doing an online session as an alternative. It would be optional, because if you don't have the equipment to make it then you can't participate and so I can't require it. I'm investigating possibilities. When I learn more I will let you know. I may then do a quick survey to gauge interest.
In the late 1980s, Champaign had a severe ice storm. Some parts of town were without power for a week. Obviously if I lose power at my home or lose the network an online class is not possible. Let's hope we don't have that problem, but I did buy flashlights today when I went shopping after my other class.
Please take care of yourselves.
