Schools are still closed in Enterprise, but many will tell you the city is already back in full swing.  Police Chief T.D. Jones says all the roads are currently open.  He's thankful that people followed instructions to stay at home yesterday.

 

"Businesses are open; people are out in full force.  We’ve been watching the restaurants, and they’re all full.  Walmart’s parking lot was full, with people who have been at the house for a couple of days stocking up.  I’d say Enterprise is back in business,” Jones said.

 

Jenny Holley works at Antiques on Main and is thankful for better weather.

 

"I think it's great, it’s great for the businesses and everyone getting back into a routine.  So, we're all happy to be out of the house,” said Holley.

 

The road to getting back into the routine of things is a little longer for Ozark, as most places were still closed today, including the city and county offices and schools.

 

"The ice was really treacherous on the roads, and for people's safety, people needed to stay home,” Tanya Roberts with the Ozark Chamber of Commerce said.

 

But we found out just where to find a lot of people who ventured out in Ozark today. They all seemed to be at Milky Moo's.

 

"Oh, it's been fantastic.  I wasn't really sure what to expect, because I know the bridges are still a mess.  But we've had a great turnout today, and I just hope everybody's still being safe.  But we love that people have come out and supported us."

 

The Ozark Post Office resumed its mail delivery today, and garbage pickup will start again tomorrow.
