Journalists share pictures of an empty Atlanta

On Jan. 29, Zoë Schlanger wrote about the storm that hit Atlanta for Newsweek and how the city looked like something from “The Walking Dead.”

Images from that piece were full of abandoned cars.

And on Jan. 30, Ian Bogost wrote a story for The Atlantic about how shows like “The Walking Dead” prepare people for catastrophic events.

But maybe it was what happened in late January that really helped prepare people in Atlanta for the ice that’s settled in and the ice that’s on its way now. Here’s how Atlanta looked Wednesday from the viewpoint of several journalists.
