When It's Icy in Georgia

Published January 30, 2014 11:37 AM by Penny Mehaffey

I'm blogging today about the weather.  It is the big story here in the Garden City where I am. The lab closed Tuesday and Wednesday nights due to snow and ice. 

We had originally planned to remain open for testing but as the weather worsened Tuesday afternoon, our patients started calling to cancel. When the census dropped to one, we gave up and closed. The situation was the same on Wednesday. Patients actually began calling Tuesday afternoon to cancel their Wednesday night sleep studies.

I know other areas of the country were more hard hit, but we are not at all prepared for this type of weather in Georgia. I cannot imagine having to cope with it on a routine basis. In the best of times, we have some of the worst drivers in our town. I am happy to stay off the roads and out of their way during snow storms. 

A friend of ours was one of the teachers stuck at school with her kids in Atlanta. It was very dramatic. I am thankful that we all made it through with no major impacts. I was happy to have had a snow day but I am looking forward to Frosty's departure.
