4 inches of snow is a total catastrophe here! It's really kind of strange. Even if you know how to drive in snow, driving on a sheet of ice still isn't the best idea. And with no snow plows and no salt trucks, a few inches of snow packs into ice quickly, even if it hadn't been topped off with freezing rain. There is exactly one person on my street who owns a snow shovel, that he typically uses for leaves and other yard work. I hear Atlanta borrowed some plows from Tennessee yesterday, to plow the highways and some of the major downtown roads.

Wow. I knew there were no plows and salt trucks, but I hadn't thought about snow shovels. Although a good broom works half decently on 4 inches.

How cold is it there?

A broom works fine on 4" of snow. Doesn't work so well when that 4" of snow is followed by an inch of freezing rain, and by the time you get up the next morning it has developed a nice crust of ice over the snow. It has melted some by now, but for a while there I could almost play legolas and walk on top of the snow/ice.

The temperature has been mid 20's at night, mid 30's during the day.

True. Brooms don't work so well on crusty ice.

*pictures you walking like an Elf on the snow*

Temps not much colder than that here. Tomorrow will be especially cold. High of 20. ;P

yeah, No snow tools, so the folks were using plastic rakes to clear off the walkways and back porch. If it's a light flurry (without the ice on top) Ron often uses this:
Snow Blower

There is still ice on our road, hoping to be able to get out by tomorrow.
