GDO Staff Report

ATLANTA - Contrary to previous reports, many to most of Greater Atlanta's residents may survive the massive deluge of millions of snowflakes after all.

A glimmer of hope may appear on Atlanta's horizon despite the barrage of tiny white crystals of death that fell so aggressively from the sky above all Tuesday afternoon throughout North Georgia.

What ever irresponsible and careless behavior of Greater Atlanta's residents took part in - it's difficult to reconcile the retribution they received for it on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 28th, 2014.  Between the barrage of snowflakes and the icy cold temperatures - it was an event second only to the great flood of millennia ago survived only by Noah, his family and those who traveled two by two.

Tonite, the "All Clear" rang throughout the battered land and survivors will be searched for and rescued beginning in the wee morning hours.

Snow Shuts Down Airports And Causes 'Hundreds Of Crashes' In Atlanta

ATLANTA - A rare winter storm is hitting the Southeast and Gulf Coast, dropping 1 to 2 inches of snow on Atlanta, according to the National Weather Service.
Five small airports in the region have closed until Wednesday, according to FlightAware.com: Dothan Regional, Southwest Georgia Regional, Acadian Regional, Key Field, and Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International.

At Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the busiest in the world, 39% of outgoing flights and 38% of inbound flights have been cancelled.

On Twitter, the airport said crews have been de-icing aircraft since this afternoon. If you're flying through the area, check your flight status with your airline.

After the city was shut down for five days by a 2011 winter storm, it invested in snow fighting equipment. It now has a fleet of 40 snowplows and 30 spreaders (to apply sand/gravel mix) and a plan to take care of priority roadways, bridges, as well as hospitals and police precincts.

But while things may be better than they were a few years ago, they're far from great. Local news station WSB-TV reports the metro area's interstates are gridlocked, and "there are hundreds of crashes all over town."

Georgia Department of Transportation traffic cameras show significant traffic, inadequate plowing, and accidents throughout the metro area.
