The snow berms have brought many challenges for the people of Plumas County, but one family in Portola sees them as an opportunity to build the ultimate snowman. On Dec. 26 Kenny Schlegel, of Sloat (left), Makaylah Villarreal, of Portola, and James Lopthien, of Stead (right), built an 11-foot snowman out of the extra snow plowed up by their house on the corner of Pacific and Fourth. The giant Frosty was complete with a scarf made out of Christmas lights and a lit-up torch for a right arm.

  Snowstorms on Christmas Day 2012 and the day following caused fresh power outages in Shasta and Plumas counties, where Pacific Gas and Electric Co. crews — more than 300 strong — continued to work through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to repair broken poles and downed wires from fallen trees, said PG&E. About 3,000 customers were affected.

  After nearly a week of 16-hour workdays, most of the hundreds of PG&E workers who came from outside the North Valley to assist local crews in storm recovery headed home Dec. 27, 2012.
