The Honey Disaster by Colleen Johnson Fechser, granddaughter

Contributor: dandrew Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Grandpa Johnson had a large, many-acre farm in Idaho, where he raised bees along with farm vegetables. He sold the honey in the Uintah Basin. When the honey was ready for packaging for sale, Grandpa put it in large barrels in the trailer attached to his car. One time, as he drove into Mt. Emmons, he came to a big bridge. As he crossed over the bridge, the honey stored in the 10-gallon barrels started to shift and caused the trailer to turn over. The honey flowed freely out of their containers onto the bridge. Grandpa couldn't stop it, and the bridge was covered with thick layers of honey. As cars began to cross the bridge, the liquid honey clung to their tires. Great sounds of sticky honey sucked up from the bridge, and Grandpa said you could hear the suction fill the air as the honey was dragged from the bridge. It was quite a show, and needless to say, a big mess. For Grandpa, there were no honey sales that year!

Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
