For many, a 20-minute ride home in metro Atlanta took hours on Tuesday (Jan. 28) because of the snow storm.

Locals have spoken on social media to explain their horrors of back-to-back traffic and how a mile of travel would take two hours. The traffic got so bad that many even abandoned their vehicles and walked miles in the snow. 

Snellville Patch asked on Facebook for readers' experiences of their treks home. Here are some of the responses: 

"husband stuck in traffic for 4 hours on highway 78, still not home," said one user at 9 p.m. "it's taking 1 and 1/2 hours to go one exit."

"Atlanta to snellville, usually 45 minutes, today it took me almost 5 hours. And I just moved here from CA, 3 months ago. Not cute."

"2 1/2 hours from Buckhead to Bethany Church road on 78. I apparently left at the right time"

"5 hrs"

"I was home all day...thank u Jesus!!!"
