Anybody else caught in the Southern Snowpocolypse?
Are there any other Wootizens who were caught in the snowstorm on Tuesday? I saw that the story led the national TV news on Wednesday, so let me give you a Wooters eye view of WTH went on.
By way of background: I was born and raised in the Northeast: born in NY, raised in MA, and went to college in ME. Snow and ice, and driving in same, are nothing new to me. In my youth I had no problems heading out in my trusty Honda in any kind of weather, including plenty of times that anybody with a lick of sense would have stayed home (but hey, skiing is important). I now live in Georgia, and drive a 2WD pickup (Avalanche, so technically a SUV but it is built on the full size GM pickup frame and it drives like one).
I was working in Gwinett county, and had to get back to Cobb county: if you imagine Atlanta as a clock, I had to go from about 1:30 to 10:00. I had read the weather the night before (listed as a winter storm advisory) and was slightly concerned. (continued below).
