We’ve heard reports of people in metro Atlanta taking hours to get home in what is normally a short commute, due to the snow today. Governor Deal declared an emergency for the Peach State this afternoon. Over at the AJC, Greg Bluestein is reporting Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Governor Deal’s response to the storm, especially after the 2011 snowfall that left state troopers escorting elected officials to the Capitol on the first day of the session, will be looked at closely.
In other news, President Obama will offer his State of the Union Address beginning at 9 PM. We expect to see lots of references to the middle class, the minimum wage and inequality.
Everybody has an opinion, and if you’ve made it home, you’re not going anywhere tonight, so you might as well vent. Feel free to contribute your thoughts on the storm or the SOTU in this open thread.
