I would think the power outage in atlanta is a big issue to Amazon

it highlights the weakness of the airport should it go down.

I wasn't trying to compare it to Chicago, but I was trying to say that 6 months ago Atlanta's airport situation was probably a clear winner (points wise) for the Amazon bid but after the issue with the weather and power outage, I think it "drops" a little but its still among the top 2-3 options for airports......
