It snowed here in Atlanta yesterday. And the city shut down in to a terrible gridlock turning commutes that normally take 30-45 minutes into 10-hour long treks. Yes, you read that correctly: 10 HOURS. A lot of people became stranded and are still not home this morning. I’m feeling very lucky and thankful and sad for my fellow ATLiens who have had a rough time of it.
This article by local writer Jessica Blankenship sums it up well (make sure you click on “One guy” for further summing up). Please be safe and help others when possible.
View from my commute home yesterday on MARTA, which only took about 10 minutes longer than normal due to cautious walking. I won’t soapbox it while people are suffering, but I will say I wish our city had more transit.
