When your bus gets stuck in the snow in white out conditions, it doesn't leave you with a whole lot of options.
"Passengers were able to leave the buses if they wanted," Redfern told us in an email. "However, some elected to stay on the buses. Those that chose to stay on the buses were there until the vehicles were able to be rescued. Unfortunately with the road conditions, that did take some time."

"It is now 2:44 a.m. and these buses are still here... The bus upfront has about 10 passengers...two of them kids under the age of five..."
Riders stuck on the bus did get "warm shelter," according to Redfern.
Thursday morning there were still about 45 buses waiting for assistance. By noon six buses were still stuck.
