The winter of 2011 brought an unusual amount of ice to the Atlanta area. A sudden storm left roads impassable, and schools and businesses shut their doors as Georgians avoided the layers of ice and blistering cold that had engulfed the city. Meanwhile, just south of Atlanta, an under-construction hospital was left to weather the storm with little more to its walls than DensGlass® Sheathing from Georgia-Pacific Gypsum.
