In response to criticism about keeping city schools open despite heavy snow, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio seemingly took a shot at Atlanta and other southern cities for closing down because of modest amounts of snow and ice.
“Unlike some cities, we don’t shut down in the face of adversity. I’m going to make decisions based on the information we have,” The New York Post quoted De Blasio as saying. “We made the right decision.”
Atlanta and much of North Georgia slowly returned to normal Friday after being closed for the last two to three days after snow and ice fell on the city. The latest winter weather came two weeks after just more than two inches paralyzed the city and left thousands of motorists stranded on roads across the city.
