Good luck U.K.ers!  200year floods and 100mph winds is insane.  Hope everyone fairs is ok.

storm arrived, GA,
http://www.foxnews.c...c-winter-storm/

looking for the perfect, show the east forcast just right, but til then here,

> “Everything is just on pause,” he said, gazing at vacant streets.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, sounding a far more upbeat tone than two weeks ago, warned people not to become complacent as the storm came in waves.

“Thanks to the people of Georgia. You have shown your character,” he said. During the last storm, Deal was widely criticized for being unprepared and the state became the butt of late-night jokes.
In an early Wednesday warning, the National Weather Service called the storm “catastrophic ... crippling ... paralyzing ... choose your adjective.”

The forecast drew comparisons to an ice storm in the Atlanta area in 2000 that left more than 500,000 homes and businesses without power and an epic storm in 1973 that caused an estimated 200,000 outages for several days. In 2000, damage estimates topped $35 million.
Eli Jacks, a meteorologist with National Weather Service, said forecasters use words such as “catastrophic” sparingly.
“Sometimes we want to tell them, ‘Hey, listen, this warning is different. This is really extremely dangerous, and it doesn’t happen very often,’” Jacks said.

He noted that three-quarters of an inch of ice would be catastrophic anywhere. But the Atlanta area and other parts of the South are particularly vulnerable: Many trees and limbs hang over power lines.
