Here's a quick exchange between the pilot of a Delta B739 (DAL2256) and the Atlanta Tower controller for runway 26L with regards to the approaching ice storm over the next 24 hours. After the past winter storm just 2 weeks back, pilots and controllers alike aren't looking forward to the chaos. I'm only looking forward to it because I'll be getting out of school.

The exchange is just prior to the handoff to departure near the end of the 50 second recording I trimmed.

In that case, be thankful you live in a region that has no idea what to do with itself when some cold weather comes its way.

Back home in (central/northern) Illinois, we wouldn't have called an ice storm after a few inches of snow some sort of storm of "historic" propotions or an "emergency"... we would have called it "a mild winter, now quit yer whining and get to school/work - you're late!"  tongue

Agreed! Except for one small problem.

Back home in Nebraska, your "back home" in Central Illinois would be eating our leftovers.  evil

In other words, unless the temperature is colder than 4F/-15C with a wind chill factoer of -20F, this is just another day to get to work. Smiley
