As my sister puts it, people in Atlanta are the biggest "panickers". We once had school cancelled because they THOUGHT it was going to snow. It never did.
There is an issue with pipelines, hurricanes, state emission regulations. Bottom line, shortage=panic. People will wait up to 2 hours and pay premium prices to get gas. The search for gas permeates conversations, facebook status and dreams. It is on the news and the radio, and since CNN is based here, the national news sometimes.
Really, it sucks. It is an uneasy feeling when you live in an area dependent on cars. It is amazing how many things
But, there is a silver lining. Saturday, we took the two young ones and walked for our weekend
We are all looking at our travel habits and actually changing. Small steps... all it takes are a few small steps... by a LOT of people.
The inner hippie in me is coming out.
