Snowpocalypse, please just go away now

Well, it was fun for a while, but snowpocalypse has officially become a pain.

Although most major routes have been cleared, melting snow has turned to ice in some areas, causing bottlenecks as more motorists with cabin fever — or bothered by that harsh reality called "employment" — return to the roads.

Mayor Kasim Reed says city crews have been working on 24-hour schedules to clear main routes and, starting last night, side streets. At a press conference yesterday Reed said the "city is open for business" and will be prepared for such weekend events as the Atlanta Hawks and Falcons games.

Budget extra time if you need to drive. (A trip from Georgia Tech to Decatur last night took two hours.)

Above all else, be careful. Consider this an open thread.
