A disclaimer before anyone becomes hysterical, this is tongue in cheek or irony for those who don't get it at first scan!
Atlanta's half inch snowpocalypse!
Now Atlanta, Georgia is blaming the weatherman for not telling them that they were going to get an inch and a half of snow and thus the pandemonium, hysteria, and lack of snow driving skills, once the inch or so of snow came would occur as true southerners who run the city don't know how to handle even one ice particle or snowflake, so all true southerners go into blizzardmonium and snowsteria as a part of their survival skills in the south where there is no skill with snowflakes or ice particles. Evidently northern Yankees in Atlanta did not know that they need to be inculturated in this survival mode even if the weather is 70 degrees when the predictions are made of a snowflake or ice particle.
Given the fact that Atlanta now is 5 million plus in population and the 9th largest city in the country, you would have thunk that they would have had their snow plans in place in a city that infrequently experiences it, yet more than those of us south of the airport!
And therein lies the problem. Atlanta is no longer a southern city. It has carpetbaggers galore and the Yankees by now who have overrun this once beautiful southern belle just don't get it.
In the true south, when there is a hint of a snow flake or an ice particle falling from the heavens, true southerners go into blizzardmonium and snowsteria! True southern towns, such as Macon and Augusta, when they heard that a snow flake was coming on the weather channel on Monday, despite the fact that yours truly who happened to be at his mother's townhome in Augusta, with temperatures nearing 70 degrees and both front and back doors open to get fresh and refreshing warm air into the town home, knew that they had to act and act quickly. So that by mid morning on Monday, everything from schools to jobs was canceled for Tuesday! And then canceled for Wednesday. And guess what folks, despite the fact the roads are now clear, school, public and private is canceled for today (Thursday!).
Macon and Augusta have acted in true southern fashion when the hint of a snowflake or an ice particle cascading from the heavens is even a remote possiblity. We shut everything down and days before and warn everyone to stock up and be safe!
Atlanta? Well that is a sad story. Did they cancel school on Monday, for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday? No! Those damn Yankees thought they could cope with an inch of snow and so they ignored the fact that even the prediction of snow should have caused them to remain home, after having emptied the grocery and home goods stores, for the duration. This means of course closing schools and businesses even before the bad weather comes and even if it is 70 degrees outside!
SO FOLKS, DON'T BLAME TRUE SOUTHERNERS FOR WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT YANKEE CITY OF THE NORTH OF MACON, ATLANTA! BLAME THE DAMN YANKEES! THEY CAN BE SO ARROGANT SOMETIMES IN THE FACE OF A LOOMING SNOWFLAKE AND ICE PARTICLE! THEY DON'T TAKE ANYTHING AS THREATENING AS A SNOWFLAKE OR ICE PARTICLE SERIOUSLY.
