Its likely not the birthday celebration James Freeman wished for.
The Rome, Ga., resident spent Tuesday his 31st birthday slogging across 72 miles of icy metro-Atlanta roads for 12 hours after leaving Norcross at 2:30 p.m.
Some called it Snowpocalypse, others Snowmageddon. I called it my birthday, Freeman shared in a first-person account he wrote for Yahoo News on Thursday.

My wife is just now leaving work from having spent two days and nights there to try and get home. She’s gonna need some wine when she gets home.
Polar Vortex II: The Arctic Boogaloo?
I heard a news report this morning that said many people in Georgia are blaming the governor...
Why not the mayor?
I don’t know. They didn’t say.
Maybe they figure the governor is more powerful, and is more likely to be able to control the weather.
I heard it was ice and the state didn’t salt it. That will do it esp in GA.
Just another catastrophe caused by global warming . . .
I’m more impressed by the tumbleweed apocalypse in Clovis.
The governor has the power to call out the National Guard.
Yep, those are not going to melt away in a day or two.
“Some called it Snowpocalypse, others Snowmageddon.”
No, just pure stupidity on display when some snow and ice turns a major city into a laughing stock. I dont care how rare snow is there, people know that it does happen, and everyone from the state, city, and down to the people that didn’t invest in winter tires and salt after the LAST time, are just as much at fault.
But since Jay Carney is ALWAYS saying “It’s Bush’s fault”, no one is 100% sure he was referring to the snow storm in Atlanta.
He could have been blaming Bush for the Olympics being held in Russia, the failure of the Obamacare web-site, the Benghazi attack, the continued existence of Hillary Clinton, the recent earthquakes in southeast Asia, a random house fire in Tuscaloosa Alabama or any number of other recent and historic occurrences and catastrophes, whether natural and “man-caused”.
Call Christie...he knows how to do that.
Everyone should have been on the phone getting some trucks on standby....
Our weatherman had this predicted. No excuse!
...and the National Guard can cause snow storms?
The Governor sounds like a Republican version of Kathleen Blanco.
In Boston people are still wearing shorts with only 2 to 3 inches on the ground.
I don’t understand why everyone just didn’t hunker down for a day or two. Why were kids stranded at school and on buses?
