Here are the overdue pictures. 9 inches fell on Sunday night, and then the temps got too cold to keep it powdery and about 0.5-1 inch of ice fell and packed it down. By Monday it was about 5-7 inches of ice, perfect for sledding and discing. The temps here have been low and Atlanta had somewhat of an ice storm on Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday the high was only 25, but it was sunny. The whole city has been shut down for most of this week, and there are still people in suburban/rural areas who cannot leave their homes/driveways due to the ice. Yesterday I went to the grocery store because it was actually open and there was less ice on the roads, but the whole store was stocked out. There were a *few* TV dinners, canned soups, onions, and apples left. Nothing else and NO MILK
I'm telling you guys, this was only a moderate sized snow storm for anywhere and Atlanta only has 3 snow plows. 1 fun day in the snow is really not worth it. This storm made an even bigger mess in the NE (10-24 inches in most areas!!!). They can easily deal with 5-15 inches up there, but any more and it's just as much of a mess.
Snowing real hard (like 3+ inches an hour) and cars are literally stopping on the highway.
Whiteout...no visibility (it actually snows this hard 2-3 times a year in Atlanta, just not as long)
Shut down in a brief snow pause.
2 of our 3 snow plows, LOL
Even my covered balcony got about 2 inches reduced down to about 1.5 inches of ice.
Peachtree Road = empty. This is Monday at about 10. I ran into a friend from school who is from New York, and his work told him on Friday to bring stuff home to work from home. He ignored it thinking that it would not snow enough in Atl (bc it rarely does) to shut the city down, and he had to trance over to his building to get some papers.
Met up with some friends here to sled/tube down the hill.
Lake is probably frozen right now, at least partially.
Most people in Atlanta do not have chains.
Horrible shot of me, haha.
Too icy for that.
We did a lot of this, hehe.
And the beginning of a moderately bad ice storm that caused a good amount of power outages.
This is from literally an hour or so ago. Going on 5 days on the ground...a long time for Atlanta to have this much ice on the ground.
