On the way to the North Central Illinois Swim Conference at the DeKalb YMCA Saturday morning, we were following the McHenry Marlins school bus.
It stopped a railroad crossing on Plank Road, just west of Burlington. (I know the road well because between my junior and senior year at Oberlin College, I went to summer school at NIU.)
The car immediately behind the bus stopped, as did I.
I was taking a photo of the two in front of me when a van impatiently whizzed past me.
Unfortunately, the person’s license plate did not make the photo.
