And to think, the only ones that complained yesterday about staying off of the interstates, were the big rig 'professional' drivers who caused the majority of traffic jams two weeks ago

I spoke to someone in knoxville tenn today.
They said knoxville was like atlanta during "Leon" 2 weeks ago only they did not get any of the embarrassing negative publicity as we had.

They even had kids sleeping in school buses and school board bubbas in hot water just like here.

He also told me that earlier in the season they had some snow and treated the roads for that even but for "Leon" (he didn't call it Leon) they did not treat the roads or close anything and the various agencies all claimed to not know anything was forecast.
just
like
someone
else
we
know.

Wrong.

GDOT/HERO use Southern LINC, VHF analog, and have radios cross programmed on various DTRS systems. I've been dealing with them all day at my job

Portables don't have vehicle mounted antennas.

Maybe you can program him up some radios on somebody's DTRS ?

I'm sure someone will be willing to loan you some radios too so very little investment.

It's the thought that counts.

I heard on the news that metro atlanta has 665 snow plow trucks. I have a hard time believing that.
