It was a 38 mile commute but much of the same thing so I kept it short. Yeah its not so much that it was alot of snow, but under it was ice and we don't treat any roads here. At this hour there are thousands of people all around Metro Atlanta stuck on roads because we can't treat even something simple like this
I try to avoid this but it just came on so fast and turned to ice in a hurry.
Reminds me of 1969 after I got out of the USN. I bought a new CB350 Honda in Jan that year - didn't have the money for a car so I rode the Honda to work and back - and everywhere else I wanted/needed to go. That was one of the snowiest coldest in the NW in years. I remember having to dig snow out between the fender and front tire with the screwdriver out of the tool kit. I only dropped the bike one time and I was sitting still when it happened. Some guy ended up in a ditch and the roads were glazed with ice. The road was slanted about 5-6* and on a curve - cop would not let me pull to the shoulder. He did help me pick the bike up. Then remarked "I guess thats why you tried to get over huh?" Yeah - idiot! I don't venture out when its cold any more.
Crazy weather and even crazier weathermen. Riding in light gear 2 days ago and the forecast was for flurries only yesterday. Well I just got finished ICE Skating with skates on out on our parking lot this morning. Literally ICE Skating. We get ice mixed with our snow and what Burgman30201 accomplished yesterday is amazing. Glad you made it safe and sound.
KUDOS to you Patrick! :thumbup:
Burgman 30102, I take that same route home from work on hwy 92 to Woodstock.
It became much worse after you went past. Left work at 4pm yesterday in Norcross...finally got home at 6:45am this morning. Abandoned cars everywhere....
