Warlordtrooper: tinfoil-hat maggie: Alright lets get things out of the way. Subby , you're an ass. I'm way late, wanted to talk real weather talk with people but well, sure lets make fun of people/cities with only enough sand/salt to maybe do overpasses bridges that is the south we close down for a day or two ,most I've seen in almost 30 years is 3 days and that was early March when we go 12 inches of snow lot's pf places east of us got more.That is the fault of people voting for people that think taxes should not exist. If the red states governments were properly funded they would be prepared

John Buck 41: tinfoil-hat maggie: John Buck 41: Bontesla:tinfoil-hat Maggie:coldf33t:eraser8:Just trying to offer a common sense suggestion. If your civic leaders are too short-sighted to accept it, I feel sorry for you.Well see it's take in a a bit of intelligence or knowledge of the problem/.I.m tote's fur sure ,an you could solve i with out addicting to Atlanta budget, ^rick.I have no idea what you're trying to say here.
eraser8: Bontesla: In all seriousness though - winter storms in Atlanta are historically unpredictable given its location.Historically, storms like this are pretty common. At least once or twice per season...prior to 2000, that is. A bit less frequently recently.Seriously.I'd also like to applaud all of you for making me a cheerleader for a city that I farking hate. I miss California more than any of you can possibly imagine.
John Buck 41: How much is a few tons of salt (or sand) to a city with a budget like Atlanta? Just buy it and store it somewhere. It's not gonna spoil, FFS.
Walker: You will be 43 degrees Thursday, 48 Friday and Saturday, and 58 Sunday. One day below freezing. That's it. Calm the f*ck down.
Walker: Really Atlanta? Really? This isn't the Apocalypse. It's a one day storm. You will be fine with the food you already have. No need to clear out groceries stores. You will be 43 degrees Thursday, 48 Friday and Saturday, and 58 Sunday. One day below freezing. That's it. Calm the f*ck down.
No Such Agency: Pinhead Patriot: [static.fjcdn.com image 300x300]It's easy to make fun of the South for not weathering this weather very well. But they don't have any bloody snow tires, and their cities don't own fifty plows each. Because normally that would be a big waste of money.
duke3522: Came here to make fun of my southern friends trying to drive on snow. But farking ICE!! Hate that crap!!/Hang tough my southern friends
kasmel: HotIgneous Intruder: Please note: You cannot "drive" on ice.Just don't do it.Well, you CAN. You just need chains and a lot of patience.

real_headhoncho: Ice storm? You're farked.Stay inside, stay warm, get some books to read and a non-electric light source./grew up with a oil lamp that was always on the fireplace mantle. Had to use it more often than not.
Mein Fuhrer I Can Walk: 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?

Because normally that would be a big waste of money.The areas getting 8-10 inches of snow is a lot of snow even for the north. Yeah, the South is about to get walloped and I can't say I blame any southerners for getting a little rattled over it. Good luck to all of you and be careful.8-10 inches isn't a lot. We got that Saturday night here in NY. We get 5-10 storms bringing that each year, and 1-2 that drop 12-18 inches. Last year we got almost 30 inches over 2 days. That was a lot of snow, and still not even close to what they get in the snow belt.

DoctorWhat: I'm always amused when someplace in the south shuts down for a few inches of snow.*reads TFA*Ice. Ice is a different matter. Ice storms suck no matter where you are.
AngryDragon: They're getting 3 inches?
