So send everyone home and hunker down

It's no one's fault, they're not equipped to handle an event like this.
How much money do you set aside for snowstorms when they're as infrequent as they are? Who will run the show—the city, the county, or the state? How will preparedness work? You could train everyone today, and then if the next storm hits in 2020, everyone you've trained might have moved on to different jobs, with Atlanta having a new mayor and Georgia having a new governor.
So the question is, shouldn't the city and state persons (There are a lot of them. Atlanta's regional government is unwieldy to say the least.) known enough about this situation to say, "Hey, everybody maybe let's take a couple days off from work and school"?
