Snow Alert

Here's the Caltrans traffic-cam image of Hwy. 101 north of the new bridges at Confusion Hill, at 1:45 this afternoon.

Below, Route 299 at Berry Summit around 2:30 p.m.

Needless to say, road conditions are nasty out there, and two recent road fatalities highlight the danger. First there was the death of 24-year-old Fortuna CHP officer Thomas Adams, who was involved in a head-on collision near Piercy Tuesday afternoon, when it was pouring rain.

Yesterday saw another traffic fatality. According to a release from the CHP, a woman named Lauren Sanders was killed Wednesday night at approximatedly 7:45 after drifting off the road in her 2004 Chevy Avalanche and colliding with a tree. She was ejected from the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries. Her sole passenger was uninjured.

All of which is to say, drive carefully out there, folks.
