It was a rare Southern winter storm that dropped more than 3 inches of snow in some areas of north Georgia, while 2.3 inches were recorded at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Willis. For the city of Atlanta, it was the latest lesson in how crippling a snowstorm could be for a Southern town. Winter Storm Leon may not have dumped more than a few inches of snow on the Atlanta area, but according to the Weather Channel a mere 24 hours after the mass exodus began; many of the major roads were still experiencing massive gridlock.

NBC News reported the Georgia National Guard was out on state roads distributing more than 200 cases of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) to stranded motorists. Huffington Post reported that hundreds of children spent the night on school buses, as the storm paralyzed the region. The south saw fatal crashes and hundreds of fender-benders during the teeth-chattering cold. The Georgia State Patrol reported in a press conference that there had been more than 1,200 car accidents, 130 injuries and one weather-related fatality on Georgia roads during the storm. Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed urged people not to go on the roads until conditions improved, which could be days. For jobs in Atlanta, click here.
