Old Man Winter Makes An April Visit To LA

-A A +A

Weather: Snow, fog hit the area after a spring storm

By The Staff

Spring had come early to Los Alamos but it seemed Old Man Winter had one more hand to play.
Los Alamos woke up Wednesday morning to a couple of inches of snow on the ground and a dense fog.
The only problem seemed to be a mini rock slide on the Main Hill Road, but officials moved the rocks out of the eastbound lane in time for the morning commute.
“There were no big problems (from the storm),” LAPD Cmdr. Randy Foster said. “It did cause some rocks to fall on the front hill but they were quickly cleared.”
Roads were clear throughout the area. And the school district did not have to worry about making a determination about holding classes because it was on spring break.
Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico were spared for the most part.
Other areas were not as fortunate.
A large spring storm delivering heavy snow, strong wind and rain caused travel problems from Wyoming to Chicago on Tuesday, closing larges stretches of highways and delaying hundreds of flights.
In Wyoming, stretches of Interstates 25 and 80 were closed for parts of the day, and blowing snow made driving dangerous along other highways. About 180 miles of I-25 between Cheyenne and Casper were under whiteout conditions.
