We had here in Red Bluff, Ca about two inches of snow and it stayed with us for about four days due to the cold weather. Being from Maine it took me a long time to get use to no snow at Xmas. My son bought a house at Lake Almanor last spring. We have it all fixed up to spend Xmas there. It may not be a white Xmas as snow fall is
lacking this year. And Mt. Lassen is towering over this area.
Fran, my condolences and thoughts are with you.
