Hi You Guys, 
 I logged in to say I hope everyone in the ATL area is safe as possible. My team left work around lunch. Of 19, only 14 are home as of 1AM. 1 at Target and 1 at home depot. I rented a room in Stone Mountain for one of my elder employees on my card and two other I have been unable to reach. 

It took me a little over 6.5 hours to make it home. I saw cars slide backwards down hills/across bridges. A man was trying to cross Northside Drive and a car slid into him coming to a stop at the light. Thanks Goodness he got up and limped to the gas station. 

I was in Chicago for over three years, Blizzard of 2011 and all that but the difference I noticed is that:

A) the number of people involved, since it's virtually impossible to survive in ATL without a car unlike Chi and NYC, played a major role in the chaos. There were literally parking lot like situations on every interstate and service road. Public transit doesn't really afford people the option to get home any other way than attempt to drive or walk...

B) ATL was/is not prepared. Schools, particularly APS and GCS should have followed suit if the surrounding counties and just bit the bullet. I saw someone said that snow is uncommon. In the years I was here before, never experienced ice like this. Snow is annoying. Ice is deadly.

C) The children involved make it such a sensitive case. My coworker said she will not go home without getting to her son. He sent pics of them sitting around at his school and said kids were crying for their parents. He is 8. 

I pray for all those involved. People walking in the cold, kids/parents separated and those still sitting on the roads waiting to get home. 

Unhappy

I don't like it at all.

Wow as a mom I'd be worried as heck to know my was 4 year old was stranded on a bus. Those kids are probably hunger, crank, cold, etc.

Everyone knows school bus don't provide sufficient heat to keep an entire bus warm. In high school, we also brought extra blankets to keep warm on traveling trips.

It was ice here in the Houston area and the schools, daycares, etc closed down. It iced here last week and they showed cars crashing into bridges, road blocks, other vehicles, etc.. They had over 800 accidents before 12 pm last week when it iced.   Houston mayor was like stay at home if you don't have to go out, don't.

Hey ND. I agree, I even called all area Marriott's and Sheraton's in my work vicinity  around 3pm to book rooms for my team and myself and everything was booked solid. 

When it starting snowing around 12pm, i would not have imagined it would turn into ice so quickly with so many people on the roads. Ouch

You summed it up well Moody. The babies is what is really upsetting me. Kids stranded on buses and cell phones are dead. Parents are worried sick. Police aren't responding to car accidents with less than 2 vehicles involved. Can't get through to 911. It is a complete mess
