Winter Gridlock 2014 – a pictoral timeline » Tues 1/28 @ 5:42PM – rocky ridge rd ice skating rink

Tues 1/28 @ 5:42PM - rocky ridge rd ice skating rink. Rocky Ridge Rd was ridiculously slippery by the time night begins to fall. Here a car has slid off the road. Just out of frame are several cars abandoned on the side of the road. I talk with one of the drivers leaving his car asking him what his plan is. As we are talking, a jeep wrangler comes flying by way too fast. The guy I'm talking to comments that too many people think their 4WD truck can handle it and end up in the ditch. Here is a great picture of this phenomenon a friend of mine posted to Facebook from live news coverage Tuesday afternoon: Ballantrae truck/SUV pileup. This neighborhood is so steep, though, that probably only trucks attempted the climb, which is why you don't see any cars.

Short very hot ride. Cahaba river at the lowest I've ever seen it - at Hoover east ballfields shortly before running over fresh gum and cutting the ride short to clean it off my tire. Today's rollercoaster experiment - 20 repeats with Garmin 1000 forwards and backwards. Movie theater roller coaster (top) and Green valley rollercoaster (bottom).
