The ice storm is a-comin' -- here is a roundup of the latest news, and a close-up provided by those experiencing the weather.
It's a rematch that came sooner than expected: Atlanta vs. Mother Nature.
Just two weeks after a few inches of snow paralyzed the city and snarled traffic for what seemed like endless hours, another storm -- this one promising to coat the area with ice -- is upon the area. Atlanta is the focus because of the chaos that ensued in the last storm, but the whole story about the weather includes a much larger swath of the South.
If you're an Atlantan making a last-minute grocery run, here's hoping you love corn and asparagus. Because that's all that may be left on most shelves as residents stock up and hunker down for the ice storm.
The good news? Everyone learned their lesson last time. The bad news? Everyone learned their lesson last time and crowded supermarkets to gather supplies as the storm approached.

Georgians, let that last point sink in: Possibility of hundreds of thousands of outages for days

Well, this is unpleasant. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says a winter storm that's about to wallop part of Georgia could be worse than a storm in 2000 that left people without power for several days. Yikes.
Much of Georgia will be slammed with sleet, ice, snow and high winds in the hours before daybreak Wednesday, and there could be power outages that will rival the days thousands went without electricity in 2000, according to a National Weather Service briefing given to agencies based at the Georgia Emergency Management Agency’s command center just before noon Tuesday.
