I am so thankful I have a job that is more flexable. I could have been trapped on 75 near 285 but luckily I left as soon as I saw the snow coming down and only had a 35 min commute. I still haven't driven anywhere because in Cobb a lot of the side roads still have ice.
I work for a company that sets up emergency repairs and tows for semi trucks and man that evening was a nightmare. We had one stranded driver without heat who was freezing to death and contacted the police to see how best to get him some heat only to be told he needed to call 911 immediately to get on the list. Such a nightmare.
Thankfully this made me giggle which eases a bit of that crazy weather pain. <3 Frozen
awe I know those feels anna I know those feels (btw there was a storm in Atlanta???? I got family up there and there freezing there butts off poor folks they all told me too "daaaaaarn you cold winter go away tired of this bull and being sick " ) so I pray for em and all
the bad was less about the weather and more about some poor calls made by the government. No one cancelled schools or un-necesary work until the snow had already begun coming down. Then EVERYTHING was closed at the same time. So commuters that normally hit the highways at staggered times (anywhere from 4-7pm) all were on the roads at the same time. Add to that all the school buses and parents that would have normally been home, instead getting in cars to pick kids up from school- our roads were never meant to hold that many people all at once. So the traffic was as much about the sheer volume of cars as it was about the ice they drove on.
