Snow Storm Passes, Normalcy Returning
After sleet and snow hit St. Peters, the city began to thaw out on a chilly Wednesday.
The snowstorm was hardly historic, but St. Peters did get hit by a wintry mix Tuesday.
Between four and six inches of sleet/snow fell on St. Peters throughout the day on Tuesday and into early Wednesday morning. The accumulation was enough to shut down Interstate 70 and close schools for Wednesday.
Early Wednesday morning the Missouri Department of Transportation reopened I-70, but cautioned drivers to avoid the road if they could. Thanks to the bright sun and the work of road crews, most of the snow was removed from I-70 in St. Peters. The road conditions were slushy, but driveable.
That description was apt for most of St. Peters. Road crews were out at 7 a.m. this morning clearing off the street. Entrences to businesses were still a mess of packed snow and slush, but for the most part, the commute in St. Peters was close to normal. Still, patches of slush remained on the road that could prove hazardous to drivers going too fast or not paying attention.
ARTS CENTRE UPDATES
The St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre is open today, but will close at 5 p.m. Music classes will take place as scheduled, but programs are canceled.
The St. Peters Planning and Zoning meeting scheduled for Wednesday night has been pushed back a week. Because of the wintry conditions, the commission will meet on Wednesday, Feb. 8 instead. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. at the Justice Center.
