White out conditions and slick streets in Texoma

SHERMAN, TX- Its been steadily falling across much of Texoma for a few hours now. White-outs have even been reported in some areas. There's at least an inch on the ground around Sherman and that's making for some slick roads.

The snow is sticking to roads in Sherman. It’s been steadily coming down for several hours making the roads a little tricky to navigate.

Lots of areas are iced over, making some places impassible. Grayson county drivers encountered plenty of snow that was very heavy at times.

Sherman police say there have been at least a dozen accidents in the city, most of those vehicles sliding off the roadways. The Grand Street overpass in Sherman was shut down about 8:00pm and police say it will be closed for much of the evening because it's too icy to cross.

There's also a report of an 18-wheeler blocking the East control road of 75 near Catfish King.

Denison Police report a few vehicles sliding off the roads, but no major accidents. DPS has had no major accidents either.

We talked to one driver who was out braving the slick streets, just trying to get home. “Being here and seeing snow, all of a sudden its hot one day and cold the next."

Police want to remind you all overpasses and any inclined streets are slick tonight. TXDot and city crews are out sanding. Police even have chains on their patrol cars and are asking that you don't call them unless it's an emergency.

Texoma Christian School will start at 10:00 am Tuesday, two hours behind schedule.

    Well Bill from Southmayd it seems you cant win on one subject your posting on so you move to another. I have to agree with Anonymous, out of the estimated 20 or so cars I passed on the way in from Gainesville, might have been one female. You are seriously a very angry man.

    Anonymous, no I did not see them anywhere because I'm not foolish enough to try and drive in this weather. I live 20 miles outside of Sherman/Denison and they don't sand way out here in the country anyway.

    Bill, every person I saw with the exception of one that were tuck this morning were men. Take a chill pill before you blow a gasket.

    Amy is right,DOT cant drive for you, if you wrecked out it is YOUR fault, because you cant drive and most, if not all were FEMALE drivers, take responsibility for your actions, because not all drivers slid off the road, only bad drivers and speeders so check yourself and dont expect someone to do everything for you.

    Sanding is all about timing. If you sand too early the snow/ice forms on top of it-useless

    Hey Amy, tell that to the people that were spinning into the guard rails this morning!

    Amy, did you see them anywhere?

    Oh, quit griping, "Irritated". They can't be everywhere at once, there are a lot of bridges in this area! And maybe DOT had better funding when your grandpa worked for them.
