1. Hurricane Sandy shut down much of the East Coast yesterday after landing ashore in New Jersey. Atlanta obviously wasn't in the direct path of the superstorm, but it still had a local impact on weather, flight delays, and more.

2. According to Georgia Department of Driver Services records, less than two drivers per day are caught texting while driving. As WSB suggests, everyone else may be "checking a map," which is a likely excuse.

3. Savannah city planners are proposing to build a double decker highway to combat traffic congestion. As one commuter described her current 25-minute, eight mile commute during rush hour: "It's like Atlanta."

4. The Wall Street Journal Magazine has named Atlanta as one of the 25 most innovative cities in the world. Apparently, we are a city "where people, passion and ingenuity are shaping the world for many years to come."
