    If 3 Inches Of Snow Can Cause This Much Chaos In Atlanta, What Will Economic Collapse Look Like?



    endoftheamericandream.com / By Michael Snyder / January 29th, 2014

    This week, three inches of snow “paralyzed” the ninth-largest city in the United States, and the highways of Atlanta “resembled a scene in a post-apocalyptic world” according to national news reports. Hundreds of cars were abandoned on the side of the road, people were spending the night in churches and grocery stores, and many walked for hours in a desperate attempt to get home or find needed provisions. So if three inches of snow can cause this much chaos in one of our major cities, what will a full-blown economic collapse look like? Most Americans have no idea how fragile our way of life is. In the event of a major natural disaster, a massive EMP blast or a complete economic meltdown, our lives would change very rapidly, and most people are totally unprepared for that.

    In Atlanta, a relatively minor snowfall has resulted in the deaths of 5 people, more than 100 injuries, and some commuters reported being stuck in traffic for up to 18 hours. According to USA Today, highways around Atlanta resembled “a post-apocalyptic world” at the height of the storm…

    Call the Canadians in! They can teach people in Atlanta to do stuff, like build a campfire and all that. Or just walk home.

    When it's cold in Canada people don't walk anywhere. It's a matter of stay in the warm or die.

    Mayor of ATL is a dumbass, and didn't order the roads treated till too late. I'm basically 90 miles north of there, and out city/county crews were out at 10:00 MONDAY night salting/sanding the roads, so that they wouldn't be as bad once it hit. We had a few back roads that became virtually impassable, but the interstates, specifically I-85 coming out of ATL, was clear as can be. There was no excuse for what happened in ATL.

    Being a country boy I tend to not get the whole entitlement thing. Expect the best but prepare for the worst is how I was raised.
