The classes after 6 tonite were canceled by the university. They are supposed to let us know by 6 am tommorrow if classes will be canceled for the day. I read somewhere classes have been canceled by the university only 3 times since 1858? Don't know if that's true. Can anyone shed some light on this?

The University has rarely shut down. It has done this twice in recent years, both in '07 and '08 (...or maybe '06 and '07?).
Does not happen very often. Most likely you'll get an email from your professor saying the class is canceled, especially if they have students who do not live in Ames, or they themselves don't live in Ames.
They cancelled class a couple times in the 1996 and 1997. I think both times it was the start of the spring term. One time was for extremely cold temps -80 wind chill and the other time was a terrible ice storm ~ Cy ride was going sideways down Lincoln way.
Campus was closed the entire day of Feb 25, 2007. I spent the entire day walking on campus taking pictures. Just confirmed that with the data tags in my photos. I was a TA that semester and had to deal with rescheduling labs.
