14 Michigan School Districts Band Together After Heavy Snow Crushes Bus Garage, Destroys Buses
Parts of Northern Michigan have seen more than 200 inches of snow, and that massive amount of snowfall has put strain on buildings - like the bus garage in Negaunee. After a weekend roof collapse left the school's fleet of buses in shambles, 14 other school districts from around the Upper Peninsula have pitched in offering spare buses, space to house them and other support to Negaunee schools.
The Ishpeming Area Historical Society shared the list of schools that pitched in to help on Facebook with this proclamation,
We're so proud to be Yoopers. All about what being a Good Yooper!! We all care about our neighbors all across the Yoop!!
NICE Community Schools
Ishpeming Public Schools
Marquette Area Public Schools

It's worth noting that Negaunee schools were in session on Tuesday, just two days after their bus garage collapse and when another 16 inches of snow fell across Marquette County. Now that's how you deal with winter.
