Historic snowfall in the Southeast threatens to shut down multiple cities for days
Parts of the Southeastern United States woke up to a most unusual sight on Wednesday morning: Snow and ice.
The icy onslaught came from the incipient stages of a rapidly intensifying storm that threatens to set off a "meteorological bomb" as it creeps north through Wednesday night, but it's already making history in the South. Regions of the U.S. that aren't accustomed to seeing snowy weather are bracing for record-setting accumulation.
In Tallahassee, a Florida city that hasn't seen any snow in decades, a measurable (if small) amount was visible on Wednesday morning. The 0.1 inches of accumulation might seem like nothing to a northerner, but it was more than enough in Tallahassee to prompt a warning from local police.
