The ice and snow storm that is ravaging the Southeast and Eastern seaboard has Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters in 57 days, squarely in its path.

By late morning, trees and shrubs were snapping from the weight of ice and nearly 200,000 people in the Atlanta area were without power. At the moment, the Masters, which is scheduled for the first week of April, is the least of the state’s problems, but there’s likely to be significant damage for the storied club to clean up.
