Now there's a statement I wish all states would issue. But this one comes out of Atlanta as 2 inches of icy snow created a complete interstate stoppage during yesterday's evening rush hour and continues even this morning.
This from the Atlanta Journal-Consitution: "Gridlock on the interstates this morning continues to frustrate drivers still trying to get home on a commute that started Tuesday.
Interstate 285 is closed in multiple spots and traffic is still bumper-to-bumper and barely moving on several other interstates, including on I-75 north of downtown and on I-20 west of downtown. Transportation officials said the biggest problem is tractor-trailers unable to get tractionon the ice that are blocking multiple lanes of the interstates.
Students remain stranded at schools, as commuters lucky enough to make their way to make-shift shelters begin waking up in churches, fire houses and stores that remained open all night to provide a warm place to stay as temperatures plummeted into the teens."
Unreal how hard it is to deal with winter weather in areas not used to it.
Then this: Tractor-trailers were advised not to enter Georgia all.
“If there isn’t already a tractor-trailer in Georgia, please stay out,” Barron said. “We cannot deal with anymore.”
Don't we all feel this way even in the best of weather.
