Sleet Covers I-30 in Saline County

SALINE COUNTY, AR – Beyond excitement over snow thunder, drivers through Saline County are about as excited for the winter weather as a tree trying to bloom for spring. 

Businesses like Domino’s in Bryant closed shop early on Wednesday.

“We called it at about 6:30,” said Emmett Blake. “Go ahead and close up and get it everyone home safe.”

The rush of drivers trying to get home before conditions get worse backs up traffic along Interstate 30 even more. 

Drivers like George Billings and his friend Apollo making the long haul across Arkansas decided to spend the night here and wait the storm out however long that might take. 

“Tomorrow will determine midday will see what it’s like with the freeze up now will just have to see.”
