    Ice on Campus

    Anyone have any video of a wipeout from today on campus?? Or any stories? Always entertaining to see people trying to get around on days like this. I definitely slipped a couple times.

    Re: Ice on Campus

    I was driving home from the gym last night around 10pm and was completely oblivious to the notion of the roads being iced over. Main streets were all completely fine and just wet but the second I got into my neighborhood I realized too late that the streets were an ice rink. Drove straight into some guys yard and cranked the wheel to avoid his mailbox then corrected and drove down his driveway.

    Never done that before.

    Campus is a ghost town, so probably not many stories. I about biffed it first thing this morning though.

    Re: Ice on Campus

    It didn't happen this year, but a few years ago a buddy of mine had a final the morning after an ice storm in Ames. Showed up and the teacher was nowhere to be seen. They waited around for an hour before the teacher showed up. She was escorted by an ISU PD officer and she had apparently slipped on the ice and shattered her wrist. Gave everyone in the class A's for showing up and then went to the hospital.

    Re: Ice on Campus

    I was walking out to the car this morning holding a briefcase, my lunch and our 6 month old child in a car carrier. I managed to stay on my feet, but boy did it have the makings for disaster.

    I slipped while carrying my daughter on an ice covered slanted driveway a few years ago. IIRC she was about 13 months old and I just wiped out and landed on my back and kept her from hitting the ground. That really sucked.

    Yeah.. was over at a friends place last night watching some movies, didnt realize how bad it had gotten until i got a text from a friend that had left 'you might not want to drive... i just slid down a hill in the parking lot (of the apartment complex i was at near merle hay) and into a car'. I did end up leaving, but thanks to the warning i took it extremely slow getting out of the parking lot and didnt take the route that involved the hill. Interstates and main roads were fine but yeah things got iffy once i got west of jordan creek pkwy.

    Re: Ice on Campus

    Walking to the bars last night I saw a girl wipe out. About two seconds after that a guy on the other side of the street proceeded to also biff it. He was a bit more smooth getting up though as he did a few push ups before rejoining his group.

    There used to be a Hardees on Welch that had a glass atrium in the front. Every time there was slick conditions my friends and I would go eat there and watch all the people and cars sliding around.
