I went up to Caterville to gat a bisciut today around 10am and itwas snowing up there and it was already sticking! Went home and I got out about 2:30pm and roads were coverd! so I went to the dump (which was closed) and procceded to make my way home and cars in the ditches were everywhere. I saw the first snowplow about 4pm?? Well they droped the ball competely on this one. School kids being stranded in thier scool bus were everywhere,people on thier way home were only doing 1mph average. At the hill near my house there was at least 5-8 cars parked at the bottom of the hill. And it will get worse-tonight the snow will become a sheet of ice come tommorow morning, it should be a blast to get in this stuff tommorow. At one intersection there a full size dump backed of the roas and a sign company truck parked beside it. Hey y'all- stay warm tonight. the weatherman hit a home run in Atlanta,ga today!!!! 728588 I got to figure out how to post pictures.

I lived in Memphis for 6 years before moving back to KY, and as mudhound said, the south just isn't prepared for winter events like this. Stay safe and drive careful!

Whew!! The DOT finally rolled some trucks today,both salt and snow plows. There was a big hoo-doo a couple of years ago when we got hit with a storm like this, they out and bought a bunch of snow fighting equipment. Sooo i think they should have plenty equipment to fight a snowstorm like this. From what I understand they didn't turn the trucks loose early;as in yesterday. The horror stories were on the radio this morning,sheeples that have been on the road since yesterday morning-afternoon. the weatherman hit a home run in Atlanta,ga today!!!! 789354

I lived in Memphis for a few years, when snow and ice is predicted, stay home.  People just do not know how to drive in slick conditions and the municipalities are not equipped for snow removal.
