  • and all i’ve had here in clearlake city is a short flurry around noon .
    could get more , Cobb is all white up there and its only 37 right now as i type with lots moisture heading our way.
    drive safe
    or better yet , stand back and get a laugh at the crazy ones driving in it .

  • Maybe they mean ‘Covelo Road south of Laytonville?’

    • My error. When I initially began the story the snowfall was reported just to Bell Springs Road. Later reports took the snowfall to south of Laytonville and I neglected to delete the part about Bell Springs.

  • At first I was surprised they closed the schools, but as today unfolded, I was glad they did. It was not a good day to be on any roads.
