Lots of Snow at Pine Mountain Lake!

Pine Mountain Lake and Groveland received a much needed dose of snow last night.  There was 9 inches at my location and it looks like it will stick around for a few days with the cold temeratures that will continue.  I braved my way down the driveway this morning to get a few pics, and that turned into many pics.

The major streets are plowed but there was the usual assortment of some drivers going way to slow and some going way to fast.  Pine Mountain Lake Rd between Ferretti and Cresthaven was closed due to a large fallen tree across the road.  Here are some of the better pics I was able to get:

    Great pictures. How often do you get a chance to take snow pictures at PML?

      Hi Fred,

      Pine Mountain Lake level elevation is 2500 ft., so generally we are above the fog and below the snow. We do typically get a half dozen days of snow here per year and in most cases it is gone in the next day or two. So we get a taste of it but are not inconvenienced by it. PML and Caltrans provides snow plowing and I have never needed chains in this area.
