AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

It seems any time south Georgia gets snow or sleet, Americus gets the most. It started sleeting there about 9:00 p.m. Tuesday.

It was a quiet around the city. By 8:00, most restaurants were shut down. Captain D's was one of the few places opened, and they planned to close early. Worker Vanicia Merrit said, "We've been very slow, very. People come in and out and don't even want to dine-in anymore cause it's cold. They're ready to get home."

Earlier in the evening, workers put sand on area bridges, but law enforcers encourage people to stay off the roads.
