I don't have a Tauntaun so I've been at home all week.
Why can't people in Atlanta get out of their house when it snows?
This photo says it all!
Not to mention we had freezing rain on top of the 4-6" inches of snow around the city.
The ice is the worst because we don't have enough sand, salt, or gravel to spread on all interstates let alone the major streets and secondary roads. Small streets, subdivisions, and everyone else are on their own. Seriously, I saw a postal worker sprinkling salt from her truck yesterday. It appeared to be coarse salt that one would use for cooking. Poor Atlanta....

In case we needed to get out sometime. I went out yesterday to shovel the driveway....

We watched a lot of local news, always entertaining to see 15 mile backups on closed interstates, cars sliding around on ice, and reports of empty grocery store shelves.
I worked on work stuff from home.
I worked on the endless Roll Roll Cotton Boll quilt.
The cats stayed warm by sleeping on heat vents.
I wished I had some sled dogs.
I just have erstwhile sled cats....
Instead of sleeping curled up in the snow like sled dogs, "sled cats" sleep curled up in quilts. Go figure...
