I was upset that the flag wasn't flying over Fraser Hall at KU this week.
Kansas University spokesman Todd Cohen said the flags over Fraser were removed temporarily during inclement weather.
"When the weather is bad, they do remove the flags to protect them from the heavy rain and winds," he said.
He said the American flag over Fraser is getting old, and the recent demand on flags has made finding a replacement a challenge. So KU especially has wanted to protect the flag this week.
Flags nationwide will be flown at half-staff until Saturday evening.
