Can't Escape It

February 15, 2010 — As if all the snow in several parts of the U.S. wasn't already enough. MORE weather alerts were issued Monday.

It's President's Day in the United States, but residents there may not be able to fully enjoy the holiday.

From freezing rain to sleet and snow. The U.S. continues to get battered with it all.

Storm warning and weather advisories were issued in sections of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia Monday.

And the list doesn't end there.

Other watches and warnings have been posted in Tennessee, Kentucky and parts of the Mid-Atlantic states. Up to 10 centimetres of snow could fall for those areas by Tuesday. Hundreds of flights in and out of Atlanta's airport were cancelled Monday after the system started to move in on Sunday.

Washington was ready to announce another snow emergency if conditions got bad enough. The area is still digging out of the heavy snow that buried the city in up to 100 centimetres last week.

Meanwhile, Kansas City is cleaning up their own mess after a multi-vehicle pile up on Sunday. Cars were intertwined on two interstate highways after visibility dropped to near zero. Snow flurries lead to white out conditions that became extremely slick and icy.

Thankfully, there were no reports of death or serious injury from either accident.
