‘Catastrophic’ storm slams into South

Northerners who have gotten feet of snow this winter are having a hard time not laughing at Southerners struggling with an inch. Guess it is all what you are used to.
Check it out:

A massive storm that has already brought wintry weather to parts of the South slammed into the Atlanta area Wednesday, creating icy conditions on roadways and forcing airlines to cancel thousands of flights.

By 5 a.m. local time, freezing rain began falling in Atlanta, covering cars and road signs with ice, according to MyFoxAtlanta.com. The National Weather service is predicting 3 to 5 inches of snow Wednesday in cities including Atlanta, Marietta, Lawrenceville and Decatur, and heavier snow in portions of northern Georgia.

Georgia Power reported that more than 100,000 customers were without power early Wednesday, many of them in the Atlanta area.

The icy conditions have forced the cancellations of thousands of flights across the country, including nearly 70 percent of flights heading in and out of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International airport, the busiest in the nation.
