Thunder and freezing rain began to fall in the Branson Tri-Lakes area shortly after 6:30 this morning.  MoDOT crews were ready and working through the night laying down salt on major and secondary routes.  MoDOT spokesperson Bob Edwards says breaking will be a challenge today:

Edwards spoke this morning on the Steve and Janet Show.  He encourages motorist to clear their windshield to allow for optimal visibility.  Also, allow distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you, and most definitely wear your seat belt.  He says with more severe weather expected, everyone should consider staying home, if possible.  For a list of road conditions, click on the link below:
