Why? We see snow every 2-3 years for a day, maybe two? I guess they should spend millions and millions of dollars to buy and maintain equipment that gets used once every other year.

But...

Then again, practically everyone in Atlanta are from up north, that would explain their driving.

Roads don't even get plowed when there's 2 inches of snow around here. Why is stopping in the middle of the road a solution to snow? The "gridlock" is what gets me. There's just no excuse.

It's not magic up here. The roads are no more clear up here they were down there, and most people drive around 2wd vehicles on summer tires. Plows are not constantly running, and if they come out at all it's after the storm. We rely on wear from other cars to clear 2-tracks on the roads during rush hour.

I was reading some yahoo article comments, and some moron spent 5 hours to go pick up his wife 1.5 miles away. The average person walks 3 mph. Is your wife that lazy that she can't walk for 30 minutes?

We got about 8.5" up my way (north of Allentown). Still waiting for "The Big One"(that's what she said )!

Here's a couple of pictures I took with my Galaxy SIII.

I'm just glad the snow is falling! Without snow, it's just cold, and that's no fun... Be safe out there (have fun, of course)!

Hey Jay, thx man. Work delay till noon. Not looking so good today & the hour commute should be doubled if not more. We got some decent ice. It does look like a winter wonderland for sure! Be safe wherever ya go today!

We're finally getting consecutive days of snow; here come the tourist hordes, but our local businesses need them anyway.

The snow didn't shut down the city, the fact that it blew in here so fast and turned to ice, then the 18 wheelers got stuck, that's 99% of what shut down everything. Even the know it all damn Yankees that always complain about it here claim they never seen it turn to ice that fast in the worse storms up north! Funny, they also claim up north the roads are constantly salted before a storm and wondered why we didn't do it here.

And once again, were smart enough to live where that kind of weather happens once every 3-4 years so nobody really needs to knows how to drive in it.

Nice pictures, Jeffro06; thanks for sharing!


We got about 2" of light, fluffy powder yesterday, but it might get interesting later this week! Keeping my fingers crossed that the storm tracks in our favor!
