Snow and Ice Storm 2014

A cold rain began falling across north Georgia on the evening of February 10, turning to sleet and freezing rain during the early morning hours of February 11. More ice fell on February 12, causing many power outages. Then several inches of snow fell on top of the ice. Most schools, and many government offices throughout north Georgia, were closed through February 13. Governor Nathan Deal declared an emergency in 91 counties. However, after being poorly prepared for a storm in late January, state and local government officials, and most Georgia citizens, were much better prepared for this storm, and there were few problems beyond the power outages.
