It snowed a few inches in Atlanta on Tuesday and it turned into a State of Emergency. As a result, the Pistons-Hawks game that was scheduled for Wednesday night has been postponed.

The Pistons' official release says the game will be rescheduled at a later date.
This is the second Hawks game to be postponed in four years due to a little snow. If you're wondering how this could happen over a few inches of snow, you should read this.
It was hard for me to not make light of the situation being from Michigan and seeing functionality in far worse weather conditions, but the situation is very real and serious, especially for the parents who had to rescue their children from stranded school buses or go pick up their kids from school today after dropping them off yesterday. It's a legit mess.
