While only rain fell in the city, places 40 miles northwest saw 2 to 3 inches of snow. In their warning, National Weather Service forecasters cited potentially crippling snow and ice accumulations as much as three-quarters of an inch for Atlanta. Wind gusts up to 25 mph could exacerbate problems. Aaron Strickland, emergency operations director for Georgia Power, said the utility is bringing in crews from Florida, Texas, Oklahoma and Michigan. Strickland, who has spent 35 years with Georgia Power, said he’s never seen an inch of ice in metro Atlanta. “I’ve seen people forecast it, but it’s never come,” Strickland said. “And I’m hoping it don’t this time.” President Barack Obama declared an emergency in Georgia, ordering federal agencies to help with the state and local response. The quiet streets were a stark contrast to the scene just two weeks earlier when downtown roads were jammed with cars, drivers slept overnight in vehicles or abandoned them on highways. Students camped in school gymnasiums. More
