Got Iced - But Avoided Disaster
With temperatures staying close on either side of the freezing
mark, the moisture Collinsville reveived Fri-Sat-Sun (Jan. 13-14-15)
was mostly rain or quickly melting if frozen. The roads were a bit
slick briefly but most of the ice to be seen was on trees and power
lines. VVEC showed small numbers of outages scattered over the northern
part of their territory. I was not aware of any city outages. School
was in session Friday. Sunday temps were high enough to melt of
any remaining ice.

|School Zone Warning
Sign Partially Restored
|The east flashing
school zone light at Collinsville High School (on Highway 20 / Broadway)
has been restored this week ... following an accident back in September
2016. Depending on the angle you would have to know the limit is 30
MPH when flashing as the flasher may block the digits on the sign.
Saw the photo
on your site of the speed zone signalization. Parts that make up this
system had to be ordered separately. We are still waiting on the clamps
and speed limit signs made for that pole. Those signs will be attached
to the pole with the caution light fixtures. Work in progress.

|A Few Warm Days
|We might all be covered
by ice in a few days ... but the Cardinal soccer teams were out checking
out the new turf and setting up the nets at Sallee Field Monday afternoon
with hopes of a few spring-like days before the next frigid blast arrives.
