    I know this probably won't happen but isn't there a TON of bridge building equipment currently engaged along I75 north in Cobb county?

    That'd be way too intelligent. First the mayor will have to figure out how to funnel as much money to his supporters.

    I have a friend who has been sitting in traffic for 6 hours now and has been sooo hungry. I've tried to tell her many times about keeping some food and water in her car. It always fall on deaf ears. Maybe this will be a wake up call for her to think about, but I doubt it.

    In an unrelated question, does anyone know where I can borrow a metal plate five lanes wide and a couple of hundred feet long?

    Asking for a friend.

    I estimate the backup will be back to I-285 or longer.

    You might want to allow a few extra minutes in the morning.
