Several residents of metro Atlanta and beyond woke up to little snow Friday morning, but soft flurries quickly turned into heavy snowfall.
Schools announced early dismissals, Georgia Power reported hundreds of outages and Atlanta traffic became disastrous as a mix of rain and snow clogged the roadways.
According to Channel 2 meteorologist Katie Walls, the mix of rain and snow is expected to turn into all snow Friday evening around 9 p.m.
Amid the chaos, some Twitter users turned to humor. Others poked fun and recalled Atlanta’s lack of preparation during 2014’s Snowmageddon.
Here are some of the funny (and self-deprecating) tweets about Friday’s winter storm in metro Atlanta:
