Weather?

Yikes, we were suppose to arrived on Friday. Driving down from St. Louis. What is the prediction for the weather on Friday? Someone told us 9 inches of snow and some freezing rain?

I think there's a winter storm warning for that area. Check weather.com or google a local TV station for their forecast. Be careful & stay safe.

Check out KY3.com. It's the main TV station in Springfield MO plus they have weather cameras in Branson.

OK, will check the station in Springfield. I have checked the weather channel and weather.com and they are saying two different things. Maybe if I pick the better forecast it will come true!

There was sleet in Branson today from 11 am till it started snowing about 5 pm . Streets in Branson are a mess. Schools closed. Silver Dollar City did not open today--/ haven 't heard about tomorrow, but doubt they will open. Have read that one theater is making arrangements for employees to spend the night at the theater after the show. Jim Stafford has announced that his theater will not open Friday. Don 't think I would come to Branson this weekend .

Read online that SDC and the Showboat are both closed today as is Tanger. Think there are other closures, too.

We don't have plans to go to SDC or on the Belle, but you never know if we ever get there. Planning to leave early tomorrow morning (Saturday).

The snow finally stopped this afternoon, but did get the 9" they were predicting. We got out this afternoon and were surprised at the road conditions---- nothing is clear. They have worked on them but everywhere we went the roads had packed snow on them. Some shows are open, some have closed, as are the businesses---kind of hit and miss as to whether they are open or not!

We are leaving at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning. We hope to get there safely. Since we have a unit with a fireplace, we may just kick back and relax. We have tickets for three shows. And hope to shop a little. Anything else will be a bonus. Not coming with big expectations since the roads are bad, but we know we will have fun anyway.

J-W how is the weather and the roads we suppose to be there on Sunday Dec 15, but are having doubts, can you please advise us on conditions of roads, places opened and so forth. We are coming from Texas so we are not used to the cold which we don't mind, but driving in ice we are not too thrilled! Thank you and hope you all are having a wonderful time.
