I'm sure Atlanta is beautiful right now.  Unfortunately I only visited once and it was 2 June's ago.  I think I know why they call it "Hotlanta"

I’ve always heard it said that things start on the west coast and make their way east. We’ve been experiencing spring here since around January 2, which means it took just three months to make it all the way east! J♪♫♫♪

David....Everything is now starting to bloom.

Renee....The flowers are now coming back to life.

Jim....Lucky you in Jan.  Atlanta was shut down with snow for 4-5 days in mid-January.
