Friday snow coats parts of county

LAKE COUNTY – Snow returned for another winter visit to the county on Friday.


Areas of Cobb have been seeing light to moderate snowfall during the week, with the snow usually melting off fairly quickly, according to Cobb area resident Roger Kinney.


But on Friday the snow was spreading itself around the county.


Areas of the Northshore were coated white during a mid-afternoon snow flurry, with snow continuing into the evening.


In Kelseyville, snow was reported to be falling at about 6 p.m.


Snow shut down the Hopland Grade for about three hours early Friday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol. The roadway was reopened at about 7:15 p.m.


The Lake County Public Works Department reported Friday that chains are currently required on Bartlett Springs Road and on Elk Mountain Road.


CHP reported numerous collisions around the county and the North Coast on Friday due to the winter weather.


No serious injuries were reported in Lake County.


However, a collision involving a single car that went off Highway 128 east of Yorkville in Mendocino County early Friday afternoon claimed the lives of both people in the car, which hit an oak tree, according to a CHP report.


The car was traveling 55 miles per hours in rainy conditions when the car slid off the roadway, according to the CHP. No identifications were offered Friday for the Windsor residents who died in the crash.
