Atlanta Snowmageddon 2014: Part Deux!!!!
Here it comes again.
Atlanta is about to get whooped again with snow and ice starting tonight and going through Thursday morning.

Hopefully it won't be another cataclysmic clusterfuck like happened week before last, but...who knows...

I know that a lot of folks laugh at Atlanta and snow, but you have to understand, we don't have the equipment in place to deal with these types of situations. These situations are infrequent enough that they don't feel like the expenditure is justified.

This has the potential to be worse than part 1, as it is going to be, at least partially, an ice storm. I have the capability to work from home, so I will be good.

Well, my work has closed facilities for today, so I am working from home...the NWS is calling for a snow/ice event of "historical proportions" for Atlanta, starting later today and going at least through Thursday morning. I have all my preps in order (extra food, batteries, fuel, water, alternative means of cooking, lighting, etc.)so I am gonna just sit back and enjoy watching all the slappies out there have a collective freak-out.

Yep! Hubby and I went out and got everything we need for atleast a week, and plenty of firewood too.

We will be snowed in for about a week because we live on top of a small mountain here in the Appalachians, no guard rails on our road and they don't plow it.........lol.

It's beautiful out the window right now, all the snow on the trees.

That sounds really nice. We're in central Georgia, Augusta area and expecting ice blink

I think we're prepared, and will pull the cars in the fence tonight because I'm sure our neighborhood is not one that will receive the benefits of road prep and these idiots drive like crap in dry conditions.

May have to sit on the front porch with some coffee and watch the shenanigans once it gets started, lol.

Don't let them get to you. They don't understand your hilly, curvy terrain with no shoulders on most roads and they haven't experienced a two inch glaze of solid ice. I visited and hated driving around there in good weather, talk about your hair pin turns! They can kiss your butt. I've lived all over the place in this country, Maine, Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusetts and now Florida. Even with all that up north snow saturated clipper prone freeze your face with frostbite in 2 minutes warning stuff i've lived through - nothing prepared me for an ice storm with a 2 inch glaze. Most people just don't know what the hell they are talking about but get on a bitch with smug attitudes about what you can't handle. Screw them. And as for you and yours - stay safe.

This should end for you all. I understand if you are not use to those types of conditions, it makes it bad for for you. I lived in the NW. For years, even there when we had excessive snow it was hard for the system to keep up.

Here in AZ they just forecast we are going to be in the 80's & possibly 90 this week end, who knows what weather is comming next. 90 here is no big deal, but in Febuary?

Stay safe.

Final preparations began all over the Deep South Tuesday morning as Winter Storm Pax, the 16th named winter storm of the 2013-14 season, began its first wave of snow and ice in several states.

“Confidence is increasing in an event of historical proportions,” the National Weather Service said early Tuesday. “Expect significant – crippling – ice totals from Atlanta eastward along the I-20 corridor.”

Ice storms are horrible no matter where you live.
I live in Fairbanks Alaska and we have all the 'equipment' of course.
And most people drive all wheel drive vehicles with good winter tires.

Even so, a couple of weeks ago the town (including the airport) was completely shut down due to ice. The difference is, here it doesn't melt and we are stuck
with really slick road conditions for months afterwards.

We just got some snow in the north metro but it ended. The roads look completly fine, because it's still above freezing.

However, the big daddy comes tonight and it's not gonna be snow, but Ice for 1 straight day probably. Prepare for power outage!
