Former KELOLAND Reporter Witnesses Snow In South

Former KELOLAND Reporter Witnesses Snow In South

A former KELOLAND reporter is witnessing first hand the storm shutting down parts of the south.

John Bachman is now an anchor at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia. He says while two inches of snow doesn't seem like much, it's plenty for people who aren't used to it or don't have four-wheel drive.

Bachman says around Atlanta, officials are dispatching about 70 plows to help clear the roads. He adds two inches is nothing compared to what he covered while working in the Black Hills.

“I was in Rapid City when I think they got 101 inches of snow back in ‘97 or ‘98 and I remember that. That is just a ton of snow. Two inches, you laugh at it, and just the amount of it is embarrassing. When you think about how little is invested in removal of this. You've got people who don't have four-wheel drive cars because 99 percent of the time they don't need it. Then you have a million-plus people on roadways that aren't able to handle that many people at one time. It's just a perfect storm,” Bachman said.

Bachman says the city is paralyzed but things are slowly improving. The weather is still cold though, at 22 degrees, and there won't be a melting of snow for a good 24 hours.
