(Nashville, TN) -- Schools across the state are closed today as Tennesseans continue to feel the full force of Old Man Winter.

The ice and snowfall yesterday made many roads treacherous to drive, and Nasvhille police responded to an overwhelming 280 car accidents between midnight and 11 a.m. Tenessee Department of Transportation officials urged caution because even though the roads were salted Monday, the salt can lose some of its effectiveness overnight. Crews will be back at it today.
