You know it's bad when the snow rings your doorbell.

@Mat Thank you Mat for the info. I found Steve's Facebook to be quite a revelation!
Atlanta drivers are some of the worst.
That is wonderfull news!
That’s amazing, @Macromius ! That really takes me back to a blizzard in Boston during the last century. I was snowed in for 3 weeks. All that I had to eat in my apartment was rice and ketchup. Thank goodness I had plenty of coffee. I was and still am a caffeine addict

I had no idea that Newfies were representing the ancient coin hobby. Proper ting!
You gotta make do with what you have...
Exactly what came to my mind, too. I was fortunate to have worked from home that day; my wife's aunt didn't get home until 13 hours later. I walked up to the main road to take a look at things, and it was like a scene from a zombie movie - dozens of cars just abandoned on the side of the road, because of a few inches of snow.
Glad Steve is safe, and hopefully he'll make it all the way through without losing his power or heat!
Put 6" of snow on Atlanta highways, and you get gridlock. Philadelphia and Harrisburg sneer at you.
Put two feet of snow on Philadelphia or Harrisburg highways, and you get gridlock. Buffalo sneers at you.
Put six feet of snow on Buffalo, and you get gridlock. The rest of the US sneers at you, because why would anyone decide it was a good idea to live where things like that happen?
Put a tenth of an inch of rain on LA highways, and you get gridlock. Everyone sneers.
News flash: unfamiliar road conditions cause traffic problems, everywhere. Even in places that get snow every year, the first snow is usually extra-special for traffic.
Still no explanation for Boston drivers, though...
