OMG, it is HEAVILY snowing!! My deck is already covered with 1/2 an inch or more!! Photos by morning!!
The snow is still on the ground, but the snow did not continue, and my footprints still show. Tonight, KCOY out of Santa Maria is reporting snow levels down to 3K ft. tonight. (Duh) but down to 1K feet tomorrow night. I did check our local forecast discussion, and they have not changed earlier reports by much.
So, it is definitely an interesting storm. Keep it in perspective, though. When I think I am cold, I hear reports of minus 27 on the East Coast. THAT is cold!!
11 am – this is what was left over from last night’s storm, still around at 11, but only on the north side.
9:15 am – part of the forecast discussion:

9 am – a total of 2.0 inches of rain received yesterday and last night, bring the seasonal total to 6 inches. Check out the Big Sur River discharge rates. Quite a surge yesterday!
5 am – no snow. I checked. Lots of rain and around 3 am significant hail. Scared the dogs!
