The second wintry storm in two weeks to hit the Deep South encrusted highways, trees and power lines in ice knocking out electricity to nearly a half-million homes and businesses.

But it didn't wreak the highway havoc in Atlanta that the previous bout of heavy weather did — largely because people learned their lesson the last time and stayed off the roads.

At least nine traffic deaths across the region were blamed on the treacherous weather, and nearly 3,300 airline flights nationwide were canceled. (AP)
