It's snowing and sticking on this side of the Valley, and if the accident is any indication it's probably pretty slick out there. My thermometer is reading 33 degrees, but it's probably colder in some of the higher elevations. We're supposed to be getting snow until around 4 p.m. today, with a daytime accumulation of around an inch.
