Toby Gerhart Recounts Snow Problems In First Minnesota Winter

Do you remember your first snow?

Vikings running back Toby Gerhart was on Chris & Ben on XTRA Sports Radio in San Diego to talk about Adrian Peterson's recovery from injury and their friendship, when Gerhart told a funny story about his first Minnesota winter.

Coming from California, Gerhart had some problems in his first Midwest winter.

Find out what Gerhart did below the jump.

"I didn't have a car up here just yet and so I was borrowing one of Adrian's cars. It was this little sports car. And I didn't even realize it snowed until I opened the garage, and I was like, ‘Oh no, I'm in trouble.' I decided I didn't want to drive. I tried to call a couple guys - nobody answered. And I was a rookie, I was scared to be late to meetings so I was like, ‘All right, I gotta just try to go for it.' And I was slipping and sliding the whole way and couldn't make it up the last little hill into the facility."

Now, Gerhart has his own car and presumably has a better time in the winter.
