AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) -- The American Fork High School marching band's trip to Washington D.C. for President Bush's second inauguration was extended, although it wasn't by choice.

Last week's blizzard along the East Coast caused major transportation problems and left the American Fork students, teachers and parents who made the trip a lengthy journey home.

The return trip was scheduled for Saturday, but turned into Sunday because of the weather. Two of the six flights carrying members of the American Fork party were delayed and one was canceled. Everybody was home by late Sunday, a bit weary from the travel.

American Fork was one of only 21 high school marching bands to march down Pennsylvania Avenue for the inauguration.
