Elsewhere in California, up to 4 1/2 feet of snow fell overnight in the Sierra Nevada around Lake Tahoe, ski areas reported Saturday. That came on top of as much as 9 feet of snow in the Sierra and 4 feet in Reno on Dec. 30.Echo Summit is about 30 miles from us. It's rained almost all week here and doesn't look like it is going to let up until next weekend.
Interstate 80, which crosses the Sierra and links Sacramento, Calif., to the Reno-Tahoe, Nev., area, closed Saturday as did two other major Sierra highways — U.S. 50 over Echo Summit and Highway 88 over Carson Pass.
