    Hello, as always I hope everyone is well. This weather really has been something to deal with. One day it’s warm, then cool, warm then almost hot, cold, fog and rain. What in the world is next? It’s been hard driving the bus with the weather the way it is. The fog really slows us down safety — first and schedule second. So if your bus is a little later, just wait, it will be there.
