ATLANTA, Ga. — Snow and sleet that hit from Louisiana to the Carolinas on Wednesday, caused many southern four-wheelers to forget how to drive.
Up to 21 centimetres of snow fell on parts of the region and a hard freeze made the Thursday morning drive very slick. Up to 30 centimetres of snow was predicted for North Carolina.
Three deaths were blamed on icy roads in Mississippi. In South Carolina, officials told all 64,000 State employees not to report to work Thursday.
Southern Mississippi recorded eight centimetres of snow, and Montgomery, Ala., got 10 centimetres — the most in that city since a blizzard nine years ago dumped 15 centimetres.
The snowfall hardly compared with the 213 centimetres that paralyzed Buffalo, N.Y.
