SNOW DAY! Nearly a Foot of Snow in Redding Closes Schools and Causes Powers Outages to 20,000 Homes

It was a rare night in Redding when around 7 pm Tuesday snow started falling on the city sitting nearly at sea level. This morning, up to 10 inches was sitting on the ground.

It’s been six years since the city saw a significant snowstorm and it showed. Downed trees and powerlines have caused power outages to approximately 20,000 homes and closing all of the schools in the area.

With the power outages and road conditions, many of the local businesses have closed for the day:

You know what this means? SNOW DAY!

That’s right, the rare snow day has returned to Redding, with power outages and school closures forcing people to leave their homes to enjoy their community covered in snow. Sledding, snow angels and snowball fights are the theme of the day as emergency services rush to fix the downed trees and power lines.

Now comes the bad news: it will be short lived. The forecast shows that temperatures will rise significantly this evening, bringing rain back to the Northstate and melting the white gold.

But that doesn’t mean you can enjoy it. Here are some of the rare sights of snow in Redding:
