Central lIllinois is dealing with worst winter storm in decades...and is now dealing with potentially record breaking temperatures. Snow, cold and wind presented plenty of challenges for crews trying to keep roads and streets clear. Some area counties pulled crews last night, but in Normal, plows were on the street through this morning. Wayne Aldrich is the Town of Normal public works director. He talked with WGLT's Mike McCurdy during Sound Ideas. Crews have been salting, knowing it won't be effective until it warms up a bit. While there's still more work ahead, Aldrich says crews completed their shifts safely last night.
