With the recent warmer temps and rainfall across the area we have seen improvements at all sites with the exception of Starved Rock which is still socked in with ice that keeps compacting on the south wall keeping us at the 105’ width restriction.  We will be keeping an eye on run off and precipitation forecasts that may impact the wickets at both Peoria and LaGrange in the coming days.
