Every few years it snows here in Middle Georgia and this week we’ve had such an event. Our area received about 2 inches but the ice on the roads make it so much worse. If any of you have been watching the news and see the enormous traffic backup
on the interstate in Atlanta then you know what I am talking about. Having lived in the south for most of my married life, I have realized that while southerners may not all know how to drive in wintery weather, the states and cities are just not equipped with the manpower, salt trucks and other equipment to deal with such storms. Thus, we have these situations although, this is one of the worst I have seen since I have lived in Georgia. It’s cold, ice and a stay-in-the-house kind of day and in fact, nothing is open anyway. Classes have been cancelled most of this week and my husband may go back to work tomorrow, hasn’t been confirmed yet. However, my daughter, who is a nurse has had to drive to work the last two days in this mess. The bright side is, the pretty snow will all be melted by Friday as our temps will near 60 degrees. So, for the last two days it’s been crockpot meals as I sat by the fire warming up and studying.
