(NBC News) -- While much of the South is digging out from a strong winter snow storm, metropolitan Atlanta, home to more than 5 million people, is still ground to halt.

At the height of the traffic jam abandoned cars and trucks littered the highways and the National Guard had to be called in to help stranded motorists.

Thousands of school students were also stranded overnight and were forced to shelter in place before being reunited with their parents Wednesday.

The governor of Georgia is closing state government Thursday and asking businesses to do the same while crews deal with the roads, and taking heat for how the storm was handled.

"Well if we closed the city of Atlanta and our interstate system based on 'maybes' then we would not be a very productive government or a city," a defensive Governor Nathan Deal said.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
