Atlanta paralyzed by less than 3 inches of snow
David Zucchino, Matt Pearce and Lisa MascaroATLANTA — Light snow was falling when Samantha Avers left Duluth, a northeast Atlanta suburb, on Tuesday afternoon. She figured she would be home quickly, for it was only a 30- to 45-minute drive.
Twenty-two hours later, Avers, an account manager who had just moved to balmy Atlanta from northern Virginia, wearily parked in her Smyrna neighborhood Wednesday morning. She had been stranded in hellish snowstorm traffic, napped in her car in the middle of a freeway, eaten fruit from her Superman lunch box, watched "Private Practice" on her iPad and drank a gas station beer from a coffee cup.
Hers was just one of the horror stories from the great Atlanta snow-out of 2014.
