Glad I left on Sunday! As much as I miss snow, I'd rather just look at it from my porch than the ditch on the side of the mountain. Been reading all these posts for hours and praying everyone gets home safe or at least finds a warm refuge overnight.

My daughter says there are parents STILL trying to get to the daycare she works at to pick up kids!

It's gong to be HOURS if they even make it!

I wish they'd just let them stay put!

My daughter and coworkers has a plan for dinner to feed them and bedding for them all tonight!

They will be safe and warm right where they are!

I worry so about folks on the road and now it's getting dark!

what part 278?

 

When I was passing through there around 5:00 there was one stuck at the intersection of 278/120 (headed into hiram) and then 2 further back between tractor supply and the hospital.

 

And a tanker stuck in the left lane of 278 toward Dallas!

 

278 toward Hiram was at a stand still at 5 and I assume it hasn't moved!

I have been shoveling and sweeping our steps all day. Just got finished with it again.

I am sure I have seen this type of snow at some other time over the years maybe when I was a kid.

It is so wet and the temps so low that when you compress it with weight it turns to a sheet of ice on the bottom of your shoes and the surface you are standing on.

It is going to be a nightmare tomorrow.

<br />I saw a bad wreck on East-West Connector where a car flipped.  Person was laying out on the curb.  SLow down and pay attention.  This is some slick stuff.  My Jeep was worthless unless it was in 4 wd.<br />
<br /><br /><br />

 

That explains why traffic wasn't moving when I turned on E/W connector to try and avoid the less-traveled backroads. I ended up turning around and going Austell Road to Clay. Finally made it to Pine Valley but ended up stuck in the middle of the intersection at 92 and Pine Valley. Some nice guy helped me out of that mess, but I got stuck again on Ridge. Some guy told me to get my tires on the grass for traction. That made it so much worse. A nice lady gave me a ride home, and my daugher got a ride to my car, got it towed back onto the road, and got it home. Took me 4 hours to make an hour drive!!! A co-worker just called and it took her 7 hours to go from Terrell Mill to Barrett Parkway!!!

 

I'm just glad to be home!!!

Well, you'll be glad to know that the GDOT representative that was just on Ch2 says that ice isn't a problem in the metro..."there's very little ice". The problem was that everyone tried to commute at the same time and, due to accidents, now it's all backed up. The trucking nerve of this guy!

<br /><br /><br />

 

I was probably the one stuck and spinning!!! I apologize for any inconvenience I caused anyone!!!
