The StormTrack 9 Weather Team predicts wintery weather in our forecast
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal agrees, and has issued a state of emergency for more than 45 Georgia counties - making sure workers are prepared for the chance of snowy conditions and icy roads.
Workers from North Georgia Electric are currently on standby - ready to jump in when needed.
People we found Monday in North Georgia were stocking up and getting ready.
"I want coffee just in case I'm at home tomorrow, if I have coffee, I'm good to go," said Carla Myers.
"I'm getting some stew meat and something to make a good soup," said Mary Hughes.
Power companies are preparing as well.
"Being prepared is mainly having your equipment and material ready and be able to have response time to get there," said Chad Hodges from North Georgia Electric.
Workers from North Georgia Electric loaded up transformers Monday afternoon. Their trucks are all gassed up and they're ready for chances of snowy and icy conditions. Both North Georgia Electric and Georgia Power are relying on out-of-town contractors to assist.
"Every man available at every office will be on standby to be able to call those in and all of the office personnel, and we use a lot of engineers," said Hodges.
Power companies know all too well about the serious danger of ice on power lines and trees. Snow is one thing, but ice is much more serious.
"Ice gets on the line and accumulates and adds weight and that weight if you've got a weak point can break something - and if a tree falls on it, then you're adding twice the weight to what it supposed to hold, and it tears it up," said Hodges.
Most importantly Hodges says never touch a down power line- instead call and report it.by Jerry Askin
