Police busy on wet roads

MT. VERNON — Illinois State Police and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department stayed busy on Sunday, following a winter storm that brought about 4 inches of snow to the region.

Forecasters were correct in their predictions that rainfall would start on Saturday evening, followed by the winter blast on Sunday that started as rain, then turned to sleet, followed by the snowfall.
