Wheaton was hit hard by this week's ice storm that hit Barry County in three different waves. On this stretch of Highway 86 north of Wheaton, there were 10 electric poles down due to accumulations of ice on Monday. As the photo reveals, additional poles were downed as winds picked up and temperatures remained well below freezing. Democrat Photo
