Snow sticks to some surfaces in Jefferson City at about noon Monday, Nov. 11, 2019.


Cole County Public Works crews kept a close eye on roads Monday as snow continued to fall and, around 1 p.m., activated the drivers of the county's 26 trucks to begin treatment.

Department director Larry Benz told ABC 17 News that much of the staff were off work in observance of Veterans Day, but crews had treated the areas prone to danger such as on-ramps and bridges.

"We're just waiting to see what Mother Nature is going to throw at us," said Benz.

Several schools around Mid-Missouri by noon had called for early dismissals. Among them was Cole County R-V in Eugene, which dismissed at 1 p.m., and Russellville, which dismissed at 1:15 p.m.

Jefferson City Schools were not dismissing early but all after-school activities were canceled.
