    mayors interview


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Greg Shrader is a truck driver from Maine. He left Gainesville, Georgia, around 1 p.m. Tuesday, headed to pick up a load of cars from a plant in Vance, Alabama. The trip should have taken 3 1/2 hours; as of 12 p.m. Wednesday, he was still on the road, 23 hours later. 'I was aware of the weather situation, but I watched the morning news where they were bragging about their equipment and they were pretreating the roads, it was only going to be a couple of inches ...' As far as he can tell, he said, 'the roads haven't been treated at all.' When I spoke to him Wednesday, he said he had given up on getting to Alabama. He just wanted somewhere safe to pull over and take a nap. 'You don't want to go to sleep in the truck because if traffic moves, you're part of the problem.' He shot this photo while listening to the Atlanta Mayor being interviewed on CNN.
