Motorists stranded in CVS

As usual, the city of Atlanta was unprepared for a light snowstorm that blanketed highways and surface roads with sheets of black ice. The storm (if you can call it that) swept into Atlanta around 12 noon on Tuesday. Around 1 p.m., the first reports of school closings were announced. By 2 p.m., the roads were jammed with frantic Atlantans who left work early to go pick up their children. Scores of motorists are still stranded in their vehicles more than 24 hours later. Hundreds of students spent the night in their schools. A few lucky motorists were given warm shelter, food and drinks by staff at CVS and Walgreens stores. Chik-fil-A also helped out by offering free food and hot beverages to stranded motorists.

All of this could have been avoided if Mayor Kasim Reed and the governor's office had only heeded the weather reports.
