Despite the icy roads and power outage warnings, local nursing homes show no sign of fear as they are prepared for the worst to happen.
Morning Side of Athens is one of the local nursing homes that says it was short on staff at the beginning but they have added more staff to keep up with their residents.
Morning Side has generators that can serve as back up in case the power goes out.
Arbor Terrace has a similar setting with starting off short on staff but brought in more people to cover the employees not present.
Arbor Terrace has generators as well and believe they have no worries in regards to the ice storm.
