The last several years of drought in California were widely publicized, but wet and snowy weather has returned. It is great for snow lovers and our reservoirs. Transportation, however, is an entirely different story. The drought lulled us into thinking weather was not a factor in traversing Donner Summit, in the winter…yes think the infamous “Donner Party.” Those sunny, clear, drought-stricken winter days are behind us. Major storms have hit Northern California/ Northern Nevada and have closed I-80, which is the main thoroughfare between Oakland and Reno, over several days and more storms are on the way.
If you have cargo destined or originating in the Reno/Sparks area, please expect delays. If you are traveling to Tahoe for fun, please drive safely.
