Snow Day for eLearning Community

The presentation orginally scheduled for tomorrow is now cancelled due to bad weather. 

Why, you might ask, is an online presentation affected by a snow day?

The power has been in and out where I am, today so I'd rather not chance it.  The same topic will be rescheduled soon.
