In this view looking south toward downtown Atlanta, the ice-covered interstate system is empty on a Wednesday morning, after a winter snow storm slammed the city with over 2 inches of snow that turned highways into parking lots when motorists abandoned their vehicles creating massive traffic jams lasting through January 29, 2014.

I got to drive a race car around the Talladega track for 10 laps! Not only did I beat all the boys and have the fastest speed of the day, I didn't stall out (a true fear considering it was the second time in my life driving a manual).
Interstate in Birmingham...because of extremely low temperatures prior to winter storm 2014, the ground was frozen when the snow came and soon roads were a solid sheet of ice...and foks were stranded trying to get home from work and school--doctors' appointments--shopping! Everybody was about his/her daily life with no warning of what was to come.
