Cows I-285 Atlanta interstate accident

Cows on I-285: The internet reacts to Atlanta’s latest bizarre traffic jam

A tractor-trailer carrying 89 cows flipped on I-285 at 3:30 a.m. Monday morning, causing mayhem during the morning commute as crews wrangled dozens of escaped cows and rescued ones still trapped in the trailer. As always with bizarre Atlanta traffic disasters, Twitter was full of information and quips.

The Christiane Chronicles: Restaurant parking nightmares, and Sobban’s impressive garden

The absolute worst part about my otherwise enviable job? Parking. Depending on where I go, I’m left to navigate wonky meters, spiral-of-death garages (Empire State South), ridiculously steep terrain (Bell Street Burritos in south Buckhead), and dark, suspicious lots (basically everywhere in Little Five Points and East Atlanta).

How to work out in your car

Atlantans spend a lot of time in cars—30.1 minutes each time we drive to work. That’s more than any other major city except New York, D.C., and Chicago. When you can’t move, use the delay to exercise. Personal trainer Carlos Jordan of Buckhead’s Ultimate Bodies by Carlos suggests trying the following exercises (but only when you’re at a complete stop!)

Can Atlanta, a city built for cars, make room for bikes?

I’ve been riding to and from work several days per week since May.

Oh, and chicks dig it. And by chicks, I mean my four- and one-year-old daughters, who cheer when they see me on a bike.
