I copied this post from weather.com about the snowfall here in the southern CA mountains.
"2:26 pm ET
It's snowing...hard: The reports we're receiving from Southern California paint a picture that the snow falling over the mountains of Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Bernardino counties is coming down fast and furious.
In Crestline (San Bernardino County): A foot or more of snow has fallen in a short time resulting in hazardous travel. Two semis are jack-knifed on highway 138 between highway 18 and the city of Crestline. Numerous disabled vehicles on Highway 18.
The snowfall rate in Running Springs, California is running at 1 foot of snow per hour! That is a sight to be seen...or maybe not...as you can imagine visibility is close to zero.
What's that you ask? Do I feel guilty for taking the day off? And NOT risking the life of my daughter? nope. not at all. I love my second graders. I think they will be fine without me for today. And maybe tomorrow... and the next day.... Ugh.
