Cobb County school superintendent went home "mid-afternoon" while teachers and students were still in schools. He needs to be on the first bus back to Texas.
lots of heroes out there
If they had closed schools Monday night, and only a few flakes had fallen as forecast, people would be moaning about how the authorities overreacted for no reason.
Atlanta is never ready for ice and snow! So what made you think it was this time? If you got caught driving home, why did you wait so late -why did you send your children to school? Grow up be respondsible for your poor decisions!
The blame game makes me sick!
I like all the kitschy names for the storm, but thus far my favorite is ClusterFlake
Dude where's my car?
I completely understand the mail not coming Tuesday or Wednesday, but what's up Thursday? I guess that "neither rain nor snow" business is long gone.
I well remember being broad-sided by a motor coach on J-C Blvd. when my employer held us way too late during showjam 1982. We didn't learn anything from that one, either, did we?
It shouldn't take a disaster to remind people what it's like to spend quality time with their families. Carve out a day a month to play Monopoly, Scrabble, cards etc. together.
Hindsight is great! What would you have done differently?
There sure were a lot of 18 wheelers shown in the videos of the stuck traffic on the connector. I guess a lot of local deliveries were late on Tuesday.
Who knew there were a million cars and trucks in Atlanta to evacuate? Now we know. There are too many for our roads to handle except under normal conditions.
Where is the blame on Coke, Delta, SunTrust and other big wigs for not shutting down non-essential services?? The folks never should have been downtown Tuesday to begin with!
I'm having a hard time seeing why the GEMA director should have the same job next Monday. This was a textbook example of public misfeasance.
Among all of the traffic jams on the highways, I didn't see one salt truck. There should have been hugh piles of salt somewhere.
The weather problem could be solved by extending transit service to the surrounding counties 2 million cars heading for the same hwy at the same time will cause a traffic jam on dry days. Complete the outer highway for trucks..
How many snows will it take for Atlanta to get it right? How embarrassing. Thank goodness the children are O.K.
Bringing more businesses and people into Atlanta contributed lots of cars and trucks to the jam. We have already overwhelmed the road system. This is the opposite of Portland's planning for a quality environment.
To all you transplanted tv news reporters, Atlanta is pronounced like Atlana not Atlantaaa. This is from someone was born and raised here.
"Man survives wood chipper." By chance his last name isn't Jones, is it?
I think the reason the state did not clear the roads is they are in cahoots with the people who are towing the cars. Is it just me?
