Who got some of the snow yesterday? We didn't get any in Nashville, but it was super cold! I grew up in Birmingham and have lots of family and friends there and they got hit pretty hard! People stranded all over, kids stuck at schools, etc. My Mom was at home when it started so she was ok. My stepdad sat in the same place on the same road for 6-7 hours before he ended up leaving his car and walking to someone's house nearby. My oldest sister's kids got on a school bus when school got dismissed at 11:30 and were on the bus until it finally was able to get back to school around 3 or so. Then her husband left work around 4 and it took him 7 hours to get to them and get them home. He got home with them around 11. My other older sister had to sleep at work. And my younger brother drove as far as he could when he got off work, parked his car, went into walmart and bought a coat and some gloves and things and then walked close to 4 miles to a friends house. So crazy! So many people I know had to sleep at work or walk home or to somewhere else from work or wherever they left their cars. Wrecks everywhere. All the hotels around town are full bc people had nowhere to go. I hear Atlanta was similar! Part of the issue in Birmingham is that other than the interstates, there is this one main road that goes for miles and almost everything is off of it. And there isn't really a way to get to the other end without going down it. So the traffic is always bad on it, but it would have been a madhouse today I am sure, with everyone was trying to get home at the same time! So glad I'm not there now! Crazy.
We got about an inch of snow in the Charlotte area. We were lucky that our town was able to spray slag on the streets Monday night and schools closed early before any precipitation. Schools are closed today, but they have to make it up on Saturday
