WINTER WEATHER THREATENS THANKSGIVING TRAVEL
A large storm that's already blamed for at least eight deaths in the West, is moving this way. It's already caused hundreds of flight cancellations, and is now threatening plans for Tuesday and Wednesday JUST as people hit the roads and airports for some of the busiest travel days of the year.
That wintry mix is supposed to hit the Nashville area this afternoon and this evening, with rain and sleet, which means driving tonight or driving to work tomorrow morning could be slippery.
By early Sunday, the weather was blamed for at least eight deaths in several fatal traffic accidents, and hundreds of rollover accidents, including one that injured three members of singer Willie Nelson's band.
An update was posted online about those guys, saying Nelson's drummer has a broken hip, the two other band mates have bumps and bruises. Willie wasn't on that bus.
