ADOPT A PET: Meet Zippy

ADOPT A PET: Meet Zippy

 

ATLANTA - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a companion for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Dense fog blankets North Georgia

ATLANTA -- Even though fog continues to cover Metro Atlanta, a dense fog advisory has been lifted for North Georgia. Fog advisories are issued when visibility is reduced by fog.

Visibility was down to less than a mile in some spots Monday morning, making driving potentially hazardous. Drivers are urged to use caution and not turn on their headlights in fog.

11ALIVE TRAFFIC JAM: Live traffic conditions, cameras

The fog also affected flights in and out of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. At one point departures were delayed by up to 30 minutes and arrivals were delayed by up to an hour.

Monday's unseasonably warm temperatures -- warm air mixing with cooler surfaces -- contributed to the fog.
