I work for a company that is located in Atlanta, just south of Turner Field, on University Avenue. We were released from work at noon to go home. Being that I live all the way out in Carroll County, I should have left around 11am, as the snow storm was hitting out there first, and I was told the snow was already coming down and sticking around that time. My boss also lives in Carrollton, and we were going to leave at 11:30. But I didn't want to leave before everyone else, as some people just don't seem to understand why it would have been appropriate for some of us to leave earlier than they could, and I just didn't want to have to hear the bitching that would just be never ending.
And yes, I understand that no one can force anyone to stay at work when they feel that they need to leave due to hazardous conditions. Those that chose to stay until we were released, did so because they were concerned that they wouldn't be paid for the missed time if they chose to leave before being released. (our company is typically quite generous when closing for weather conditions, and pays us for the days we are out of work, provided that we are there until they release us or that we leave with their blessings)
My boss left a few minutes before I did, and kept me in the loop on what to expect on the road - it was not good. Here's what it looked like at Lee Road on I-20:
