At 4:00PM last Friday, the Gaylord Community Schools bus system was nearing the end of dropping kids off for the weekend when a tornado with 140 mile per hour winds hit the town. WCMU's Rick Brewer met with Superintendent Brian Pearson to talk about the first minutes after the tornado hit and how he was able to start school Monday morning.
