Reading the meters

Reading meters for Ameren is a cold job this time of year, and Josh Schwindenhammer was well dressed for it when he was recently seen walking from house to house through the village of Lostant. This week has been mostly seasonal and with highs in the 30s, a much-appreciated improvement from the sub-zero weather of late January. (Tonica News photo/Dave Cook)
