Southern states hit by rare snowstorm

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - States that don't usually get snow-- are seeing it and for many it's a headache.

In Jackson, MS -- roads are covered in snow and what few snowplows they do have were out trying to clear the mess as quickly as possible. It wasn't much better for air travel. Thousands of flights were canceled across much of the south.

Even the slightest accumulation led to serious issues. Thousands of students in Hoover, AL spent the night in area schools after road conditions deteriorated.

In downtown Atlanta, traffic was at a stand-still. A TV station reports one interstate there was basically a solid sheet of ice. Drivers even pulled out the mats of their cars to drive over.
