Storm brought initial havoc, but by the next day it was beautiful in the Basin

Chester’s early November storm created quite a bit of chaos for a short period of time, but with temperatures in the 40s the next day, Nov. 9, Main Street and most others cleared up and dried up very fast. Several local families reported they had 18-20 inches in their yards, which related to snow berms of 24-30 inches in their driveway and this berm down Main Street. Photo by Gregg Scott

The up-side of Lake Almanor Basin snow storms is the winter wonderland effect it can have on local landscapes. Here is a photo taken on State Route 32 near Guernsey Creek. The sun peeks through and eliminates the water as a young eagle sits patiently in a tree waiting to spy lunch.  Photo by Gregg Scott
