It’s been cold indeed, even here at Greenwood Cemetery off Cascade Circle where among the buried are singer, songwriter Hank Ballard and synagogue founder and journalist, Frank Taffel.

It will remain quiet and cold again Tuesday at the century-plus-old cemetery where morning temps remained well below freezing, recorded as 8 degrees shortly before 10 a.m. The wind chill made it feel like minus-8 degrees.

Dangers of frostbite and hypothermia continue as the wind chill advisory continues until 1 p.m. today. The temperature in Atlanta won't reach 20 until 1 p.m. according to The Weather Channel, and even then it will feel like 10 degrees.
