Sheets of ice caused cancellations of several events over the weekend including the 17th annual Cupid’s Ball. But 10-year-old Penny the “Wonder Dog” is oblivious to the ice as she walks with Paul Breshears, of Sedalia, at Liberty Park Saturday afternoon. “She loves it,” Breshears said. “I’m much more worried about the ice than she is, I’ve been taking baby steps.”
Fire and ice, the Pettis County Courthouse lawn, benches and walk are covered in ice, Saturday, while the eternal flame dedicated to Pettis County Service men and women burns bright. The icy conditions beginning on Friday caused several rollover car accidents and requests by the Pettis County Sheriff’s Office to remain indoors and off the roadways.
City of Sedalia salt trucks salted Third Street, near Kentucky Avenue, Saturday afternoon, as icy conditions persisted, with predictions of additional evening icy drizzle, sub-zero wind chills and snow for Tuesday.
