A winter storm caused chaos for much of the South on Tuesday night, and perhaps no city was hit as hard as Atlanta.

As it happened, Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman was stuck in the thick of the Atlanta mess while on a recruiting trip.

The coach found himself caught in gridlocked traffic for hours and took to Twitter to share his experience.

Eventually Herman left his rental car and braved the storm on foot.

After a stressful night, Herman's wife, Michelle, tweeted that the coach had finally made it to the airport. This wasn't a regular recruiting trip.
