  • Atlanta officials promise they are better prepared for the rain, sleet and freezing rain that is expected to pummel the city
  • City schools have been closed until Thursday and emergency preparations began in earnest on Monday morning
  • Already 3,000 flights have been canceled in Atlanta, Dallas and Charlotte
  • Storm to dump more wintry weather on North East on Thursday
  • Delta Airlines employees are sleeping on their planes because there are no hotel rooms across the South
