Snow Causes Wrecks, Cancellations
The final week of school in Putnam County before the Christmas break will be shorter than usual -- if students are able to attend classes at all. School officials made the decision early Sunday afternoon to call off classes for Monday, and while they make the decisions on a day-to-day basis, the forecast is such that it's unlikely that the back roads which some county school buses travel on will be clear before midweek. Today, the Cookeville District of the Tennessee Highway Patrol and other local law enforcement agencies are advising against unnecessary travel. The THP says they worked dozens of accidents across the region during the worst of the snowfall on Sunday.
