Atlanta has cleaned the shelves.  My wife just came back from the store with TP.  Scott's.

WTF?  She's a philistine

Virginia has already declared a state of emergency. Schools will close. People will panic. Snow might fall.

Meh.

2 inches of Ice accumulation predicted overnight for where I live, much worse than snow.  Ice Storms bring massive long term power outages around here.

Looks like a lotta french toast is going to be eaten in the next few days.

I went to Publix in Midtown Atlanta a few hours ago, and it was completely normal.

Though, Starbucks closed at 3:00, which clearly means the end of days.

It's not the size; it's how you use it!

This happens rarely.
Everyone is treating this like it is going to end up with massive power outages.
This is the first time I ever bought ice melt (3 bags).
It is not going to be fun at all, no one is going to drive in this.  Convenient that it is happening after midnight.

And in Georgia, the state's largest utility warned that hundreds of thousands of customers could be out of power "for days" when ice-laden tree limbs crash onto electric lines.

Well, whose fault is it then for letting dead branches linger over vital power lines?

Put down salt BEFORE the storm you idiots.... And then more after.

Ice/sleet/freezing rain with some snow...

AT LEAST 3 inches - could be much more

I've got two cases of beer, two big bottles of wine, half a bottle of tequila, and enough firewood for a few days.  I think I'm set.

The utility companies have not been clearing branches from lines as much in the past few years like they used to do.  My kindle is charged and I have batteries.  Though I wish I could play video games at least.

I'm always amused when someplace in the south shuts down for a few inches of snow.

Ice.  Ice is a different matter.  Ice storms suck no matter where you are.

Yeah Ice sucks. Even if you are doing half-assed OK in it its just so unforgiving that the people who arent doing well are going to slide into you.

It's not the dead branches, it's the pine trees that shed healthy branches when loaded with ice.  We haven't had a bad ice storm in over 10 years, nothing to thin the herd, there will be pockets with out power for days.

The current prediction is that Augusta should prepare for 5-10 days of no power.  I've been following my part of Atlanta all day and the predictions have become steadily less dire.

Still, I lose power pretty much every afternoon in the summer due to overloading of the grid (this has been common in three different places in Atlanta that I've lived) and it's not uncommon to lose it about once every three months when a tree falls on a line.  This town has way too many trees for overhead power lines.  So, I'm planning on about 24 hours of no power.

Ice is nothing to mess with. Good luck, southerners.

In the extremes areas maybe even 10 but we don't care about the snow much.

Come tomorrow noon the entire metro Atlanta area is gonna be a free bobsled course. Except the flat areas, they'll be skating rinks. We're hoping no skaters get hit by bobsleds but we all know those things do happen.

No, but they do get catastrophic floods that come down from the mountains every few years. I bet they have better flood evacuation procedures in place than Atlanta.
