Challenges for school bus drivers
Cold temperatures can be a headache for kids going to school in the morning, and school bus drivers have another set of problems to worry about in winter weather. Despite having a bus garage to keep them out of the cold, Palmyra School District Transportation Director Brian Wosman says they do worry about the fuel gelling up in the freezing temperatures. The gel point for diesel fuel is around 18 degrees. Wosman says where the buses sit in the garage is insulated, but not heated. Typically the temperature in there sits around 20 degrees in those cold mornings, but Wosman says they do have back-ups in place in case something were to happen.
