I have a good friend in the Atlanta area. He says that a snow storm moved in today (Tuesday) around noon and the City of Atlanta advised that the schools close down in order to get the kids back home. Meanwhile, workers left their offices and tried to all get home at the same time. The snow was very wet and as the temps dropped... all the highways and interstate systems around Atlanta became very slick and icy. School buses had to pull off the roads, traffic jams starting happening all over town. Several large semi trucks got into accidents on the interstates.... and all in all there has been over a thousand accidents in the Atlanta area just today! As of 12 midnight, all of the interstates (I-75, I-85, I-20, I-675 and I-575 are all still backed up. People have been in their cars since one o'clock this afternoon! Many have run out of gas and are just sitting on the side of the road with no heat. The temps in Atlanta right now are around 21 degrees. Many have abandoned their cars, electing to try to walk home... or to try find someplace to go to the bathroom. Many may not even get home tonight, electing to stay anywhere they can. But, all the hotels are all booked up in Atlanta by those who were able to get off the road this afternoon... just find a warm play to stay for the evening. And these are people who live in Atlanta! Lastly, 1,000's of kids are still at their schools because their buses had to turn back and get off the icy roads. Food has been brought into the schools for the kids to eat... with the kids being told that they will be sleeping at their schools tonight. Temps to drop down to the mid-teens this coming morning. Try and catch the evening news or... the news tomorrow morning. According to my friend, this has never happened before in Atlanta. If you live in Florida... you are a fortunate person.
