ATLANTA - Thousands of Atlanta students stranded all night in their schools were reunited with their parents Wednesday, while rescuers rushed to deliver blankets, food, gas and a ride home to countless shivering motorists stopped cold by a storm that paralyzed the business capital of the South with less than 3 inches of snow. Full story
- courtesy of cbsnews.com





Atlanta, the capital city of the state of Georgia (where The Walking Dead is filmed), located in the south of the United States is unaccustomed to cold, snow and ice. That inexperience left them ill prepared for what they consider a snowstorm which deposited 2 inches of snow. It resulted in the city being shut down, over 1,200 traffic accidents, thousands stranded on highways, and at least 14 deaths.

By the way, for all the countries that still refuse to update to the more complicated Standard System of Measurement, 2 inches is a little over 5 centimeters .

(edited for spelling )

We could sure use 5 centimetres of snow today.

39 degrees today and 37 tomorrow!

For those in countries who have 'updated' to the more 'simpler' system of measurement, that's 102 today, 98 tomorrow.

Interbreeding with ducks? Do you need to get on the web for that?
Mind you, once you get down with it, I'm sure there's a bit of a bill.
