Thousands still stranded – National Guard sending help
“More than 9,000 students across Georgia and Alabama camped out with teachers in school gyms or on buses.
Commuters abandoned cars along the highway to seek shelter in churches, fire stations — even grocery stores — after a rare snowstorm left thousands of unaccustomed Southerners frozen in their tracks.
The snow paralyzed Deep South cities such as Atlanta and Birmingham, and stranded thousands of workers who tried to rush home early only to never make it home at all.
The Georgia National Guard was sending military Humvees onto Atlanta’s snarled freeway system in an attempt to move stranded school buses and get food and water to people.
I heard a newscast this morning saying that literally hundreds of miles of roadways in the Atlanta area were hopelessly clogged.
