Snow-capped Palo Alto

An overnight snowstorm blanketed Skyline Ridge above Palo Alto Tuesday, resulting in hazardous driving conditions for residents heading for work and for flatlanders heading up to see the snow — but sometimes wound up in a ditch with spinning wheels.

Upper Page Mill Road had both tricky driving challenges and stunning scenes.

Snowy and icy conditions could remain into Thursday, with rain expected Thursday evening, according to predictions.

Flatlanders,

Want snow, go to Tahoe. Please don't come up to Skyline and make a bad road situation even worse.....

Most of us who live in the hills are Californians, and we're clueless to snow too. Especially when we have to drive through it to go to work.

So please give everyone a break for the safety of all.....

Snow is much better in Tahoe, as are the roads and the local's ability to deal with it.

Now you know why they changed the name from "global warming" to "climate change". The change can be warmer or colder. And winter doesn't officially start until next week.
