So much for not getting snow in Birmingham,AL. We got 2" of snow and it shut down the roads. Major accidents everywheres. ,Been stuck on I20 since 2:30pm yesterday with no sign of us moving. Someone bring me water and food please. Alabama please get some deicing equipment.

Probably not going to happen...not cost-effective. We're used to dealing with hurricanes. Baton Rouge is shutdown. When roads and (elevated) bridges ice over, the roads are too bad for us. Police close the roads until they thaw. I feel sorry for the truck drivers. Saw a
sleet-covered car rear window that said, "Bring on the global warming." It's suppose to get better tomorrow and be in the 70s by the weekend.

That's the problem. I'm in my car, luckily stopped for snacks and fuel before I headed home from work. Melted snow tastes good. Stay warm everyone.

May be some gators or craw fish in stream next to road. Film it and sell the story to Associated Press.

We heard the same thing in MI that "It's supposed to get better tomorrow and be into the 17's by the weekend." 2 weeks more before we break the freezing mark.

Alabama's governor said yesterday for anyone stuck on the interstates to call 911. They have people that can help.

I hope 911 referred all of these calls to the governor's mansion number.

What an idiot he is.

Atlanta is in the same shape - basically locked down tight. Less than an inch of snow when they turned all the schools out in the metro area and businesses followed suit. Interstates, including 285, just stopped with thousands just sitting. Friend of mine in metro (originally from Baton Rouge) suggested that Kasim Reed, mayor, is a graduate of the Ray Nagil school of emergency preparedness. What a mess

We're on our way to Florida, but we decided to hold up for two nights in southern VA just off I-81 until the storm passed. It was 2 deg F here this morning, but at least we're not on the road to SC as we would have been. Tomorrow does look much better!
