Thursday’s snow wasn’t deep by any means, but it created a lovely layer of ice. This is the “Climate Change Bailout Program” for local news networks and cable TV weather coverage.
Atlanta doesn’t handle ice well. I was out late last night and faced a dark drive in messy weather. I could have crashed at a friend’s house rather than drive home in the slush at 1:00am … but I knew it would actually be colder in the morning than when I started back to the house. Taking my time in the dark on the occasional pocket of ice was preferred to dodging sliding cars in the morning commute.
