False. Longest was 11 days in Beijing
@twiebe0, this is true. In fact, when the international press crew came, the traffic jam magically disappear (brought to you by the Chinese government). When the press crew left, the traffic jam came back.
@twiebe0, False. Doctor Who episode Gridlocked.
Omg this day in Atlanta was horrible. I live there and I can confirm it was like a day from the apocalypse. People were ditching their cars and sleeping in Home Depots.
@Arcanine in a tophat, after 2 inches of snow.
@Arcanine in a tophat, like two feet fall over night in Utah, no one bats an eye, but two inches fall in Atlanta, and EVERYONE LOSES THEIR MINDS!
@Not Fat Albert, Yeah...people in Atlanta aren't the best drivers...lol
@Arcanine in a tophat, I to experienced the hell here in gwinnett
@Not Fat Albert, Wanna know how I got these cars?
@killola, actually it was more like 2 inches of ice. City wide slip n' slide.
@Not Fat Albert, Atlanta literally has less then 5 salt trucks for the entire state. It's not bad drivers, it's icy roads full of people that have no experience driving them in a city with top 3 traffic already. You guys keep talking crap, but most of the people in Atlanta are from the North because of business. There will be more Knicks fans at a Hawks game than Hawks fans.
I live in Atlanta. I can tell you we are ill-prepared for snow. I got stuck three times. The ice was terrible. Some people took 24+ hours to get home. My coworker slept in the airport because it was warm and safe.
@Zade, For some reason I find it funny that folks from the Lower 48 freak out when there is an inch of snow. Now that your weather is like mine (I live in Alaska) it amuses me how you guys have a glimpse of the winter in Alaska. The seasons here are almost literally Winter, Spring, Short Summer, Winter.
@Zade, meanwhile in Minnesota we have drifts bigger then the hood of our truck and we are early to work
@DOOM AND DESTINY, I live in new York. Snow hardly ever bothers us. It has been a disappointing winter here tho
@Zade, actually, I live in Atlanta, too. I left school on Tuesday at 1:30 pm, and arrived home at Wednesday at 11:20 am. It took my older brother and I until 6:00 pm on Tuesday to travel 6 miles away from school. (The total distance is 21 miles.) My dad told me and my brother to stop at a parking lot near 75 and Northside. It took him until 9:00 pm to reach us. By 10:00 pm, we had traveled half a mile. Every road in the metro Atlanta area was basically a parking lot. Lucky for us, at round 2:00 am on Tuesday, we were close enough to a friend's house to stay there for the night. We arrived at 4 am and left at 9am. Listen guys, I've been hearing a lot from this community as well as the rest of the internet about how wimpy and weak Atlantans are for freaking out about this storm. If the northerners didn't have their salt, snow plows, and proper clothes for this weather, they would be freaking out too. Atlanta has a grand total of 8 snow plows. Chicago has 287. New York has 312.
@Zade, I live in Henry county, which is 45 minutes away from Atlanta. A friend of mine, Nash Beever, died because of the icy roads.
@Zade, I live in Fayetteville (near Atlanta) after I left I slipped on ice and broke my pelvis in three places :(
I live just outside Atlanta and it's a lot worse then people actually think it was. We let out of school early and I was going to ride the bus but then a friend offered to take me home so they did and if not I would've been stuck at school for the day. But at 12 when it let out the roads were already solid ice. Like an inch. Plus everybody trying to leave at the same time didn't help either

I live in Idaho and I personally drive 65mph when. There's 2 inches of snow on the ground...
I live in Georgia and can confirm this. People make fun of us but we get ice worse, even my friends family from Wisconsin said its worse here due to not being prepared and how quickly the ice forms.
This was legit sht. It was chaos, everything closed, a lady gave birth, cars stuck for hours, days, kids stuck in school overnight, and all because of less than 3 inches of snow and a little ice. literally as soon as the snow started to fall, all hell broke loose, it was ridiculous.
Looks like an average day in L.A.
That's cute. We get snow everyday.
@Not Fat Albert, as someone from Utah, I can confirm this. 4 feet and we're still expected in class
Dude it was terrible out here in Cali, I had to wear shorts when I went for a jog earlier, I mean man talk about inconvenience...
In KC we literally have have ice pouring from the sky right now. Fvck off atl
In Cali we literally have a time of the year we mark as Carmagedon
What does a piece of bread were when it goes to bed? It's little jam-mies!!
My uncle was stuck in his car for two days on what was supposed to be a five minute drive.
Oh man what the hell is that white stuff holy crap how are there even people outside in this?
