Tom Herman, an assistant football coach for Ohio State, documented his time in the traffic nightmare with a series of tweets.

Herman began his chronicle at the 9-hour mark of what was ultimately a 19-hour wait in his rental vehicle. Desperate to make his Wednesday morning flight, Herman eventually embarked on what would have been about a four mile walk to the airport. After falling "at least five times" during the first two miles, Herman was given a lift by a man he met at a gas station.
