Atlanta gets hit with a serious snow storm every few years. Everyone knows to prepare when the storm is on the way.

Atlanta has never ever been hit by a snow storm. they get a few flurries every now and then.

to add the word serious to that shows you have no idea what a snow storm is.

we just had 5-6 inches for the morning rush hour in Mpls-St.Paul..it slowed traffic some but no big deal...

Who cares? Everything is almost back to normal in Atlanta, and besides, there are more pressing issues facing America.

I really don't think our roads are built to handle any amount of winter weather. They are constructed to deal with high summer temps. Our temps were in the high 50s the previous day, temps finally went below freezing about the time the winter weather warning went out early Tuesday morning. I am surprised that people even bothered to watch the weather that morning because the meteorologist said it was staying south of the greater Atlanta area. People panicked at the first snowflake and that is what caused our traffic fiasco. The storm was more intense and changed direction with everyone and 18 wheelers galore packed on the roads. Recipe for disaster. I am a true blue Dem, but I can't find fault with what Rep Deal did or did not do. A day and a half and these people think we are like Detroit. SMH

PS. I stay off the roads at the sight of the first snowflake. Not because I can't drive in it, but I am scared to death of the millions of others around here that endanger my life with their bad driving habits. Most of which claim to having years of driving experience in snows in upstate NY, but are the very ones that total their cars in our winter snowflake events. LOL.

“i hope we can change this!”

I must say this, Sorry you folks is good people but GEZZ please learn to drive. All the way home I kept thinking well if the south had won the civil war at least we could have been assured most families would have had a professional driver to get them home.

how would your roads not be built to handle a few inches of snow?

Tikk, shut the hell up, and never post a message like this again, you fumb duck.

This thread is for this topic. Don't even try to marginalize its importance.

If you want to discuss some other issue, post somewhere else in the forum.

Your post is totally inappropriate, idiotic, and you're clueless as to think that
it's okay to post it here.

Don't let me catch you ever again hijacking a thread in the way you did.
You're a true idiot. Is that clear!?

Could you southern idiots possibly find a way to look more backwards?

No wonder the south is like some white trash third world crap hole.

User Take this, stay off the boards until you can shake off
your ignorance. Kentucky is a state located in the east south-central region
of the United States. It is not in the south. And, if you're incapable
of understanding that, then you're stupid. No, America is laughing at
you, Take this, because of your ignorance in basic U.S. geography.

And, all of my points were/are valid. You came back with nothing against them.
You're a non-argument-maker. Get lost!

No, you fumb duck, you were *already* schooled. Do you have trouble reading the link!?
Go back to the link. You have trouble reading and comprehending. Period.
And go back to that other city in California, instead of the new one
that's listed, unless it is the case that someone else has taken over your name.

User Take this, here is you admitting to sex crimes:

Seems like people should not be driving around in ice and snow in rear wheel drive vehicles absent chains or special tires.

Atlanta has a real "snow storm", just like New York never has a real "heat wave".
