on the 5 pm news tonight march 13 2012 donner pass has gotten a good 6 inches of new snow. and there is a good 4 - 5 days of more to come.
so i would say the passes (hwy 4, 120, 108) are going to be closed a bit longer than thought a week back.
but at least is is a heavy wet stuff..the think that makes drinking water for the valley. and stolen by lost angles so they can hose down a street.
