Stranded: Freak Snowstorm in the South Results in Epic Overnight Gridlock

•, by: Daisy Luther
Residents of the area were warned that a winter storm, quite severe for that part of the country, was headed their way.  But when the morning dawned without a cloud in the sky, people went blithely about their business.  Kids went to school, adults went to work, and it all went downhill in the early afternoon in a big way.

Thousands of students ended up spending the night at school, while others were trapped on school buses slowly getting them home. One group of kids in Atlanta were still on a school bus inching along 16 hours after they departed the school.

This wasn’t a dumping of 2 feet of snow, but a mere 2-3 inches.  Before those who live in Northern climates snicker, consider these facts: this kind of weather is nearly unheard of in Georgia and Alabama, and many of the motorists would have been perfectly fine driving home, but ended up being stranded due to the incompetence and panic of other drivers.
