I doubt you should base your decision on my opinion but I do think they'll close tomorrow. Husband (eastern Canadian native, blase about driving in this weather) just went out to get milk. He reported cars skidding all over Mabry Road and two police cars blockading the hill by Loch Highland. There's a 70% chance of more snow overnight and tomorrow's forecast high is 28. They're going to send school buses down Mabry, which is currently closed, at 7am tomorrow? How likely is that? And usually when we have snow here in East Cobb, over in West Cobb it's worse.

WSBTV now has Fulton Cty schools listed as closed tomorrow. The AJC is running behind I guess.

Benevolently accepting your apologies for any slight to the ATL. Yes, proudly, we have 2, maybe 3 Trader Joe's---the one in Midtown 'rocks'. $2 buck chuck--might run you $2.79 but well worth the investment I can assure you.

LOL--just stick with the Zinfandel or the White---nasty red wine--blech. I did find a bottle of Chateau Elan/Georgia Vineyard-muscadiny sweet, spicy red---'Winter' was sold out but 'Autumn' is pleasant.

Go Georgia Vineyards!!!!! Planning to take a tour very soon. Much to be said for the state of GA---grapes are good for you.

Love the snow, love the snow--backyard is covered in soft powder--albeit perhaps less than an inch. We are excited--yes, we are!!!

Hope it's not the dreaded 'Merlot' or 'Shiraz'---too dry.
Wish I had that DVD--'Sideways'---listening to CD's and drinking 'Autumn' by Chateau Elan--muscadiny--sweet and spicy.

Yum.

Onion soup in the crock pot and I found my candles--so I am happy.

I dont see how everything won't be closed.

I should be at work now but all roads around here are covered with 1/4 to 1/2" of solid ICE. I cant get up my own street. Tried to walk to see how far it goes and almost broke my legs 30 times in 1000 feet.

Its solid. Its ice. Its shiny.

And im not driving on it unless somebody can lend me spoked tires. Help. Im essentially stuck @ home.
