UPDATE @ 4:15 p.m. Tuesday: Government offices and most businesses have closed and many won't reopen Wednesday but, save for some sleet, Leon has been a non-event in downtown Barnesville thus far.
Report your situation in the comments section.
Winter storm Leon is bearing down on central Georgia and some sleet pellets had already been spotted in northern Lamar and Pike counties at 8 a.m.
Temperatures have dropped below freezing and will stay there until noon Wednesday. The moisture feeding the storm trails all the way west to Austin, Texas. So, this could be a Kings of Leon sized winter storm, dropping three to five inches of accumulating snow here.
Thousands of school children, liberated for two days to frolic, are glued to their windows and ready for the white stuff.
