car tires breaking on ice slick conditions like this are causing many drivers to lose control on the roads. the sunshine helped melt the snow and ice throughout the valley....but come sundown, a lot of moisture remained on the streets. dennis johnson, reno: "it will freeze up again, it will be real icy come morning." this is dennis johnson's neighborhood. as you can see, slush and ice is covering the roads...so he decided not to get behind the wheel today. dennis johnson, reno: "i have chosen to stay off the roads today, since i didn't have to go anywhere." it's these residential areas and secondary streets that drivers will still see some icy spots. jordan hill, reno: "anybody is going to skid around on ice, i mean, even if you have a four by four truck, you know. but other than that, you should be fine unless you're going up in the mountains." tiffany londay commutes through the mountain pass every day for
and today, she describes her trip through mt. rose highway, as a sheet of ice. tiffany londay, incline village: "with mt.rose, there's a lot of places that are in the shade and they don't get sun all day, so it's always dangerous." she recommends you increase your following distance and avoid braking or hitting the gas hard. and most importantly, be patient. tiffany londay, incline village : "it doesn't make a huge amount of difference on the highway, in terms of when you leave right after work or you wait until the sun's already gone down. you sort of just have to always be alert." no matter where you're driving... be sure to check the road conditions before heading out the door. you can either dial 5-1-1 or... or just head to our website k-t-v-n dot com for updates. covering storm watch, amanda ketchledge, channel 2 news. 50 inches of snow fell in the eastern sierra in january -- nearly doubling the snowpack, with two months of winter to go. snow survey so far, the snowpack is 25
nine feet deep at mount rose. that equals about 29 inches of water. experts say this appears to be a recovery year -- after four dry winters. but the storms need to continue in order to catch up. jeff "this is great to see all the snow but a 4-year drought, you're going to just come out of it with a few good storms. it's going to take some really good winters to do that." the news is encouraging throughout the silver state -- where snowpack is 50-percent above average. that's critical for farmers and ranchers in the humboldt basin, who have had little to no water, the past few years. while this recent snow is good for the snowpack... it has caused some problems when it comes to trash pickup. waste management says service to the following areas have been delayed due to dangerously icy roads: mount rose highway... montreux.... st. james village, timberline drive... joy lake
