A Cold Day in Metro Atlanta

ATLANTA -- A cold start to the work week in North Georgia with temperatures in the 20's as the morning commute began.

In Roswell, a broken water main caused anxious moments for motorists.

Crews spread sand at Riverside and Martin to prevent icing on the pavement.

Car batteries across Metro Atlanta were without spark.

Jim Pool called AAA Auto Club to give him a jump.

"I came from the airport, and it was dead," he said. "I got a jump out there and then it died again."

Kenyatta Sadat is a technician with AAA. He offers this advice, "I would advise people to have their battery checked especially if parked outside."

The sights and sounds of Midtown looked more like Minneapolis, sans the snow.

Runners in full LL Bean attire are not Atlanta-like.

It's tough on everyone including pet owners and their dogs.

Kathy Ledick had her dog in tow in the shopping district of Virginia Highland. 

"I'm freezing," she said. "My dog has her built in fur coat, but I am quite frozen."

In Candler Park, at their 9 hole golf course, there were sets of players despite the cold howling winds.

From Dekalb County and Toco Hills, customers were lined up eating egg nog ice cream.

The weather is cold and getting colder, but life goes on this holiday season with a pair gloves, a hat and a coat.

It's a touch of the Rocky Mountain West just in time for Christmas.
