The southern part of the United States has been unseasonably cold and even 
communities throughout the Sunshine State have temperatures dipping below 
freezing.

In Atlanta homeless shelters were packed .  Many of the city's pet and plant 
lovers had to bring those inside.

As a city known for its outdoor fountains, residents in Atlanta found a lot of
 their watery displays Thursday morning glazed over with ice.

Forecasters are saying the arctic blast will continue to keep a stranglehold  
on the region through the weekend.
