Strong Winds and a Foot of Snow
A slow moving winter storm dumped over a foot of snow in this valley, followed by winds gusting 50 mph. Rare in this part of the mountains, even low temperatures in the mid-teens made it feel below zero for many hours. Another storm is expected within days, even more rare when you consider that this area can go for years with no snow at all. All the same, the flakes were welcome, and the valley was transformed into scenes that would have made Currier and Ives jealous.
