Collinsville 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.
Good afternoon Ted,

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 For Soccer
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. -- Ted -- 1/9/2017
