It was a rare day in Northern California on Wednesday with Redding residents waking up to a fresh coating of around a foot snow. It’s not completely unfathomable to see snow in Redding, but receiving that amount has only happened a few times in the past 50 years.
It was a snow day for the ages and we have the images to prove it.
The snow began falling on Tuesday night and didn’t stop until the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Most areas saw 6-12 inches of snow, with around 18 inches falling on nearby Whiskeytown Lake. As the schools were closed, roads were dangerous and thousands were without power, the city seemed to collectively head outside for a fun day in the snow.
