This time, they could get as much as an inch

Georgians warned of “catastrophic snow storm for historic proportions” headed their way.

“Hysterical proportions” might be more accurate.

The National Weather Service said on Tuesday that the storm could be one of “historical proportions” with “crippling snow and ice amounts.” The agency wrote in an alert: “Prepare now for this potentially catastrophic event!!”

A winter storm warning was issued for Georgia on Tuesday morning lasting until Thursday afternoon. Light accumulations are expected tonight with an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow possible through Wednesday night, the Weather Service said. A quarter to a half inch of ice is also expected to accumulate as temperatures drop into Wednesday night.

It’s easy to understand why southern states would’t spend the money necessary to deal with a ten-year event like a bit of snow; it’s a poor allocation of funds. But why not just stay home for a day and wait for the sun to return? No traffic jams, no children trapped in schools and, if they’re lucky, no TV, so no reporters screeching panic at their audience.

    Amen. Stay home or stay where you are and let the 4 plows in the state get busy

    You have to understand that one snowflake is enough to shut down
    the schools for a week- The southern states neither have the equipment to deal with a snow storm, nor the knowledge or ability to drive in it. Plus, the press is getting tired of talking about Obummercare -they need a good storm to liven things up!

    DC gets quite a bit of snow most years. They’re just as inequpped to handle it. Maybe that’s a good thing. Close DC down and blame it on climate change.
