Another Winter Storm headed our way for the weekend

Winter will continue to kick us around the next 10 days.
Models are in pretty much agreement that we will have a system move through Friday night into Saturday and bring a wintry mix of both ice and snow.
Ice accumulations shouldn’t be heavy but mixed with 2-4” of snow (heavier amounts the further north you are), it will still make traveling hazardous.

Illinois families struggle to heat home due to high propane costs

As families throughout Illinois struggle with the soaring demand and high prices for propane to heat their homes, State Representative Josh Harms (R-Watseka) is asking Governor Quinn and Attorney General Madigan to take additional measures to help affected residents weather the storm.  In letters sent to both Quinn and Madigan, Harms and fellow lawmakers, detail four possible actions to help alleviate the crisis, while also requesting the investigation of price gouging and broken supplier contracts.
