Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Good Times left its sixth-season Saturday-night time slot for a permanent Wednesday-evening berth with this episode, one of the few in which Jimmie Walker (aka J.J.) does not appear. While driving her school bus, Florida (Esther Rolle) is trapped in a typical Chicago blizzard. Unable to move her vehicle one inch further, Florida shepherds her youthful passenger into an abandoned tenement until things blow over -- if they ever do. Guest stars include comedian Timmie Rogers ("Oh yeah!") as a boozehound, and future Facts of Life co-star Kim Fields as one of the students.
