Metro Atlanta schools and businesses closed early Friday in advance of a winter storm moving through the area. Government and transportation officials urged motorists to stay off the roads that evening so that brine and salt trucks could prepare the pavement for ice and snow.
This level of preparedness was quite different compared to the city’s reaction to winter weather two years ago. Two inches of snow brought the area to its knees, creating hours of gridlock that made Atlanta the butt of many late-night jokes, including a sketch by “Saturday Night Live.”
The bit includes a “survivor” who recalls the horror he experienced as flakes of “devil’s dandruff” fell on that fateful day.
