Sure, they need a better plan, but I listened to the CSPAN call in show about Atlanta, and a couple people got it right, but most got it wrong, not because they were stupid, but I have never ever heard so much ignorance when it comes to winter weather. One caller worked in the transportation industry and quoted how many semis go through in a day. Now, picture that one, jack knifed across the road... remember seeing it? Now put ALL the people in cars trying to get home and you have a giant parking lot. Twice in my life, when a freezing rain event happened, I parked my car and literally waited for a sanding truck to come by. And how many Minnesotans hear the dreaded "freezing rain" and just stay home? It wasn't like this wasn't forecast in Atlanta... They need to desperately take the human factor out of it, and when a warning is issued, certain things shut down... schools, etc.... private industry and businesses? they are on their own...
