But at least I'm not Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman, or the untold number of motorists stranded throughout the South thanks to a winter storm that has paralyzed the region.
As of this morning, Herman's 19-hour car ride had come to an end, as he abandoned his rental car and made his way to the Atlanta airport safe and sound, per his Twitter feed at @OSUCoachHerman.
Not that it was easy. Until receiving help from a Delta representative, per his wife Michelle (@belletjh), Herman posted that he took a number of face plants in the snow and ice while carrying his luggage.
So... 19 hrs in my car with hundreds of my closest friends. Too much ice and accidents to move. Gotta make flight to DFW. Call National— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Rental. Tell them I'm leavin the car and start walking the 4 miles to the airport with my luggage. Fall at least five times in first 2 miles— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Find an gas station. Terry Spiller, my dude, shows up and won't take a dime to take me to the final mile or two to the airport.— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
The rest of Herman's feed chronicled the unfortunate conditions, from his memories of the Starbucks coffee he had -- the last thing he ingested before being caught in the gridlock -- to his playing of the phone app Flappy Bird to pass the time.
Live update from ATL. I've moved .6 miles in the last hour. Yes, there is a decimal point in front of that number. pic.twitter.com/AbM9sIQhVv— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Herman was also able to keep his eye on the prize, retweeting OSU quarterback Braxton Miller's early-morning post about the Buckeyes' 5 a.m. workout this morning.
Either way, we're thankful to hear Herman has made it out of the situation unscathed, and wish the best to everyone across the nation who is dealing with the wintry weather conditions.
