A good old-fashioned snowstorm broke about 11 o’clock Sunday night and continued with great activity until 10 o’clock Monday morning, leaving about 18 inches of new snow on the ground at Gardnerville, making in all about 32 inches of snow. On the west side of the Valley the snow piled up to great depth, estimated to be between four and five feet. At Woodfords the snow measures five feet and the same amount is reported at Markleeville. At Double Springs between five and six feet is reported equaling the fall of 1889-90 which is the record storm by the old-timers of this section.
