ATLANTA (AP) - He's been driving trucks for 46 years -- but Vernon Cook says he's never seen anything like this.
He says he's been sitting still on an Atlanta-area interstate ramp since yesterday -- part of a long line of tractor-trailers that can't move because of the icy road.
Temperatures are expected to stay low enough to keep snow and ice on the ground for several more days in much of the South.
More than 300 passengers are stranded at an Atlanta bus station. They've been given bologna sandwiches, blankets and bottled water by a nearby jail.
The storm system is blamed for at least ten deaths. Thousands are without power.
It's now moving to the north. New York and its suburbs could get 8 to 14 inches of snow.
A number of Ohio school districts canceled classes before any snow fell. The National Weather Service warns the state will get intense snow this afternoon.
