    Atlanta's snow and ice cycling vid...

    I'm a Florida kid who moved to ATL for grad school. So far I have had 5 snow days and counting. I made a video in January of the "snow jam" we had. Not strictly a cycling video, but you get to see what a Florida kid looks like riding on snow and ice for the first time!

    Learned that snow>ice for traction and braking is an adventure. Waiting for the ice pellets to quit falling right now so I can go for a ride.

    Cheers!

    Five snow days, a closed down city and they gave the storm a name?!!! And a really stupid name to boot Around here that amount of snow doesn't even cause a snow delay much less 5 days off. This is a snow day snow





    And we only got one day off.

    Oh, the humanity! There's enough snow there to get it up about half way on your shoes! How do you cope? There's enough snow there that if you scraped up all the snow in a city block, you could make the bottom of a snowman! Horrors!

    Excellent editing on the video. I'm too lazy and uncreative to do anything interesting with the video I've recorded.
