Cobb County schools remain closed today. Due to the weather and lack of road clearing resources, it is questionable whether road conditions will improve so that children can return to school Friday.

Cobb's six city governments are open for business.
Garbage pickup across the county remains spotty. Neighborhood streets are still covered in slush and ice.
