Re: A warning from Atlanta's mayor
Yes, it is time for some serious climate and resiliency plans.

This is one thing we can take away from this. The weather in so many parts of the world is becoming more bizarre and erratic, and what else is there to explain this? Many cities are caught unawares and perhaps this is another signal for people to start planning and preparing for the inevitable, as it appears the inevitable has already happened.

A warning from Atlanta's mayor
Just noticed that Mayor Kasim Reed of Atlanta tweeted a moment ago to tell people to stay put wherever they are at midnight tonight, for a "significant" amount of time, due to ice.

You can see his other Tweets from today about the impending storm and low temperatures, and the city's preparedness efforts, by clicking here.

We hope Atlanta will have a better time with this storm than the last... by the way, two cold weather/ice/snow warnings in a matter of weeks in "Hotlanta"? Yes, it is time for some serious climate and resiliency plans.
