As for a topic to talk about, welcome from "The Ice Capital of the Southeast" -- Atlanta, Georgia! Today, a REAL ghost town.

It took THIS for me to be able to get permission to work from home today (Wednesday) and probably tomorrow.

Here's a link to a local tv station

http://www.wsbtv.com/s/news/

While the whole area was shut down two weeks ago, they took heed when the word came out that THIS event was to be even worse and with less snow but more ice -- today, almost NO traffic anywhere (except for the local yahoos who think it's cool to spin out and then total their 4-wheel-drive tanks).

It's been literally wall-to-wall, nonstop tv coverage of this thing which is bad, but really not so bad as to demand total media coverage.

But then I'm originally from the Great White North where 30-degree winter days with snow and ice are pretty much what you expect. (Been here 30 years and still can't figure out why they still act this way.)

(Snowboarding, anyone?)
