Sometimes I forget how rural my hometown is. When I was a kid, we lived "in town," so it's easy to think that you're not from the country. Yet, Michigan's southeast corner is all country.
I was in my 30's and working in Toledo when my school was closed one day in early spring because the busses couldn't get down the muddy roads. My Toledo coworkers were all hooting and hollering about my little hick town, with the dirt roads. I had no idea what they were talking about.
Hasn't everyone had to push their school bus out of the mud?
