SHARE Watch: Timelapse video of 11-hour commute during Atlanta’s winter storm

How bad was the situation in Atlanta the last few days thanks to a winter storm?

So bad, that cars were abandoned, and one was even set on fire (see above).

And now, thanks to Atlanta Journal-Constitution photographer Hyosub Shin, we can see what some of the drivers went through while sitting on the interstate for hours.

Shin says his total commute time was 11 hours, 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta to Tucker (which is roughly 20 miles). The video, which lasts less than two minutes, captures three of those 11 hours. The real action heats up at the 50 second mark, when Shin is seemingly cruising along, then spins out.
