The National Guard has been called in for the winter storm in the metro area of Atlanta that's left people stranded in their homes, some trapped in their cars overnight and students forced to stay overnight in schools. Helicopters are searching for stranded motorists while Humvees bring food, gas, water, or a ride home to others. Rush-hour traffic combined with a snowstorm led to gridlock and wrecks on highways. Former Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones saved the day for his former teammate Freddie Freeman, by rescuing him on a four-wheeler.
