White Christmas, almost

The first big winter storm of the season blew through southern California on Monday, blanketing the local mountains with snow and drenching the valleys with much needed precipitation. The National Weather Service reports that downtown Los Angeles recorded 1.5 inches of rain, while Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties recorded nearly three inches. Snowfall was expected to be between six and 14 inches. Mt. Baldy Resort is reporting 16 inches at the parking lot and 21 at the notch. Unfortunately, Mt. Baldy road remains closed after nearly 100 vehicles were stranded on the mountain Monday evening. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
