Winter storm dumps mix of ice and snow
February 8, 2022
A major winter storm barreled through our entire area last week bringing treacherous conditions and dangerous travel.
About six to eight inches of snow hit the Staunton area. Ice, snow, wind and bitter cold began early last Wednesday morning and continued throughout the day Wednesday and Thursday and had many people seeking the warmth and safety of their homes for a few days.
The Illinois Department of Transportation along with county, township and city crews were out in force treating then clearing the roadways in an effort to alleviate the extremely dangerous travel conditions.
