Getting up in the early morning to a fresh covering of snow is like a magical wonderland. Wednesday morning October 31, 2018 Salida saw it’s first covering of snow for the season. As is typical to this Banana Belt region the sun came out and melted most of the snow from Salida streets and backyards by mid afternoon.
It’s reported that areas around Mt. Princeton saw close to 12 inches of snow (technically Chalk Creek Canyon had already had snow earlier in October, so it wasn’t the first snow to arrive there). Here in Salida, it’s hard to say how much fell; it might be stretching it a bit to say possibly 3 inches, but the snow was a welcomed scene on a fine Halloween day.
