Latest snowstorms leave hundreds of thousands without power

  • 200K+ people in the state of Georgia have lost power during the latest round of winter storms to batter the South during what has been (for many states) one of the coldest seasons on record. Similar, though smaller-scale, problems have also been reported in Alabama, Arkansas, Texas and a number of other southern states. Though Wednesday’s cold weather didn’t lead to the same gridlock and isolation as last month’s snowstorm, it does offer the latest example of the sorts of problems that even public notices can’t fix, and has already led President Obama to approve new federal relief funding for the state. source

Georgia is ready for the big snowstorm, this time

  • 45 the number of counties under a state of emergency in Georgia ahead of a snowstorm expected to hit the region soon. This is a big change from the prior snowstorm, when no state of emergency was called—and the state became a nationwide laughingstock. source

These industry wide cancellations, on top of the previous days’ cancellations, have now left millions of air travelers displaced, struggling to find any available seat to get to their destinations. With planes already full with previously booked holiday travelers, remaining seats are quickly filled, (for some of the other guys, even overbooked), and some customers aren’t seeing available seats for nearly a week.
A message from JetBlue • Explaining its decision to essentially shut down most of its operations in the busy Northeast Corridor as the airline (and others) recover from the major winter storm that’s wreaking havoc on the country. All in all, JetBlue is shutting down its operations at four of the biggest airports in the country for 17 hours. Ouch.

Stuff you may have missed: January 5, 2014

In case you haven’t been keeping an eye on the news or have been stuck in your apartment all weekend, it’s really cold outside. So cold, in fact, that it might be a danger to go outdoors. Chicago Public Schools canceled classes Monday for this very reason. Consider staying inside.

A Greece, NY family whose son went missing last week found him—in a photo that ran in a USA Today spread over the weekend. He was lying next to a steam gate in DC with three other homeless men. He’s been reunited with his family.

"The homosexuals are shoving their agenda down our throats,” says a member of a group that wants to bar same-sex marriage in Utah. Ugh.

Jahi McMath’s family has until Tuesday to move the brain-dead teen to a new facility or pull the plug for good. They say they have a plan.

Yahoo has unwittingly been exposing its users to malware over the past few days. Awesome.

In case you’ve seen an ad for 23andMe, the $99 genetic testing kit that has the backing of Google and a co-founder who is still technically married to Sergey Brin, you should probably know that the FDA has told the company to stop selling the kits.

Four adults have been indicted for their roles in the Steubenville rape case, including the superintendent of the school district.

Just in time for the holidays, the East Coast is going to get a crapload of snow. Who’s the turkey now?
