The last time we got 10 inches of snow here in the Atlanta area was in the 80's. It had the highways closed down for a week.

Last night, when our 3" of snow started freezing, it caused huge traffic nightmares. One poor truck driver reported that it took him 11 hours to drive 4 miles, and that was on I-85.

Georgia does have a few snowplows now. When we moved here, there were no such outside the city, and there were no sand/salt trucks, either. Sanding was done by convicts standing on top of a load in a dump truck - shoveling by hand.

say what? You folks down south don't get 10 inches of snow! I am assuming
you don't have snowplows, so that has to be dangerous for driving.

Andrea, is it warm enough to melt your snow by mid-day? Shoveling isn't an
option for you right now.

How cold did it get?  Wondering if your plants are going to survive this.
