FML - The follow-up

Today, I went to college on bike through snow and hail only to find out my professor can't make it to class due to the weather. She lives down my street. FML

You are a lunatic and she is sane. I think you just learned a valuable lesson today. Have you ever seen someone ride a bike on a snow-covered street? It's surreal! The rider really has no way to stop or turn, so it just looks crazy!

#17, I moved from the north to Texas, and found it hilarious what people who've never been in the snow think it's like. It might be fun to skid around an empty parking lot, but when you're on a busy street and you've got the brakes locked and you are sliding like a sled, that's no fun.

Biking on snow isn't much harder than driving on snow, it just feels colder. As long as the snow isn't compacted into ice or two feet high, I'll just keep riding slow and steady.

#31, sure, but I saw a guy coming down a hill on a road with the snow packed down into ice, and was just stunned to see the poor bastard. I can't imagine he was long for this world.

Yeah, I live in Texas. We simply aren't prepared for snow. When it does snow, most people stay indoors or stay on plowed roads. Obviously, I'm not going to risk getting nailed by a truck if I actually decided to ride a bike in the snow, so I'd probably stick to riding in circles on my driveway or something.

#47, I don't think the city of Houston even owns a snowplow. Conversely, in Wisconsin, lots of people own their own personal snowplows. They are attachments that go on a pick-up truck. The way those mofos move snow is effing astounding!

There's not a snowball's chance in hell that you could beat me, in fact, there's snow-man here who could hope to win-ter. I thawed that was clear already, but apparently not. So consider this a freeze lesson then ;)

Can't belive your professor flaked out on you like that. There's snow telling how lazy some people can be, just for a few more hours of sleet. Icy no reason why you shouldn't call her out on the fact that she's shirking her duties.
