I'll gladly deal with the cold rather than the heat. I can stay more comfortable in 20 degree weather than I can when it's 105 outside at 9PM and the humidity level is nearing 80%.
It's the ice I can't stand. People in the Corn Patch can barely drive on a dry sunny day let alone an icy one.
Ice is bad news in any part of the country. We're challenged here due to hilly terrain, and general lack of experience in driving in snowy conditions.

Woo hoo! Ice storm warning for the Corn Patch. I bet you can't find a loaf of bread, toilet paper or a gallon of milk on the shelves anywhere in a 5 county radius.
I'm not coming to work tomorrow and I'm on vacation all next week.
Thursday night and Friday morning = sleet and light snow. Drove to work in 4 Wheel High.
Saturday morning = mid 20s. By noon today it was 60+ and I'm wearing shorts.
Sunday predicted to be in the 70s.
Then another temperature dip with chance of more freezing rain/light snow by Monday/Tuesday.

Trapped in the house with the wife! We've been marathoning the show Damages (we never watched the last 2 seasons that were Netflix only), and we're making some home made chicken tortellini soup...life is good.
Snow is still steadily falling and the roads are all trashed and traffic is standing still every where and I'm laying here under a heated blanket...muahahaha...

My mom left work at 12:30pm...she made it half way home about 30min. ago (last update I got from her is that she's not moving and she's about to pull over and sleep in her car at a Walmart). I'd try to help but the roads leaving Atlanta are completely blocked and clogged, and she's about 45min. away from me now, so yeah...freakin' sucks.

My company is based in Georgia and they all had the day off yesterday and again today. Kinda weird seeing FLORIDA got snow and the Corn Patch didn't get anything.

Honestly, we are just experiencing the same kinds of useless leaders most cities have 24/7, ours just shine brightest during disasters because the world's eyes are on their idiocy...and it doesn't help that our state is never properly prepared for such a storm (because they so rarely happen)...it also sucks that so many businesses and schools failed to take the warnings seriously until it was too late Tuesday afternoon. I remember sitting in my living room Monday night and telling my wife "This is going to be bad, like 2011...let's go to the store tonight and hunker down for a couple of days. So glad we did.
Not sure why it would be embarrassing to admit you used to live here though...this is an amazing city filled with even more amazing people. I watched more humbling acts of kindness from the residents of this area in the last few days than I have seen in years. Southern hospitality waving it's hand and reminding everyone that it is still very much alive and well.
