ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Most south Georgians aren't used to driving on slush and ice, but some folks don't have a choice.

The truck stop at Highway 300 and Sylvester Road was busy Friday night with truckers taking a break. Most of them told us they're used to driving in pretty rough weather, and south Georgia didn't get enough snow to keep them off the roads. Matthew Gordon said, "I see this on the road a whole lot up north, so when you see it down here it's just something to look at, but I've seen it before, so it's nothing to it."

Gordon was headed to Savannah Friday night, Following the snow to the Georgia coast.
