Tuesday from The Frozen South

I went to work today.  Managed to venture out much later than my start time, but when I arrived, it was good to know that management appreciated my efforts with a hot lunch plus abbreviated hours.  The message was clear, they wanted to be sure all of us made it home long before the roads refreeze.

Not all companies care so this sat very well with me.

Aside from that, a little Honda car was speeding north on 400 and thankfully, cleared us when it spun several times around.  This is the problem with snow on the ground in the South.  People don't stop for a minute to think that perhaps, maybe one just can't drive 50 mph after Mother Nature just dropped 6 inches of snow on us.

It's the other guy you always have to watch out for.

Drivin' 55 out!

We'll be getting your storm later on tonight. CT is a bit better about handling less than ideal driving conditions, but not by much!
Stay safe!!

people are the same way here, we so rarely get snow/ice that they still drive like it's July. Stupid!

You have had some crazy weather for sure the last few days!

It was snowing this evening when I drove home and the roads were slick. It just amazes me that some people just don't think to slow down at all!

Stay safe on those roads!

That is so true! The "other guy" drives crazy in the snow, they just don't get it. Be safe!

When my brother first moved to Atlanta in the early 70's he told us that he stayed off the road in bad weather because southerners didn't know how to drive in it! Plus, they don't have the tools to clean it up either.
