Not ATL weather

Trunk snow dude

In the last snowstorm, fingers were pointed at the city for not getting streets cleaned/sanded. Today, I think the city did fine with what they could control, mostly. The problem was often just plain too much traffic, and too many vehicles with drivers who were beyond their experience level. As we got closer to dusk, the temps kept dropping, and then ice came into play and basically it didn’t matter how many/few vehicles were out there—just plain NOT-driving weather!

Of course, the weather has been in bands, different depending on latitude…along with the late-day and overnight dropping temps….

We had to grin when we saw this Trunkster, complete with carrot nose! We also were glad to see kids skidding down hills, safely in parks.

Full report: we made a safe, albeit long, trip to the airport and back; took over three hours….
