  1. Eleven hours on a bus in a blizzard! That must have been some ordeal, and I’m glad y’all made it out! …It’s weird what we remember we were doing when we hear awful news, like the assassination of JFK. I was in 7th grad English class when an announcement came over the loud speaker.

    1. The bus thing was in the upper peninsula of Michigan when I was in middle school in 1969. My dad was stationed there. They let us out at noon, but it got really bad. 4 busses were stranded. The main issue was the bathroom problem. We got home finally at 11. My bus did anyway. I was in first grade when the JFK thing happened. I would go home to eat lunch because the school was just a few blocks away. So, I got my news from the tv.
