Chilly temps stay; snow closes I.E. schools

Winter seems reluctant to release its chilly grip on the Southland, bringing more snow and rain. Schools in the Rim of the World School District are closed on Thursday due to snow.The cold storm brought a fresh layer of snow on the Cajon Summit. Along with wind and fog there was plenty of potential trouble for drivers but the highway patrol ran escorts up and down the Cajon Pass and things were back to normal along I-15 by mid-morning.

Up in Crestline, a few inches of snow came down overnight. It's not time to put away the snow shovel just yet. Even though that means extra work, resident Bill Jacobson doesn't mind.

"It's good for your health," said Jacobson when asked if he found it a problem to be shoveling snow so late in the season.

However, not everyone feels that way. When asked if she was done with the snow yet, Crestline resident Alyson Stinson responded, "I'm done, completely done."

Snow Summit is almost completely done. They're set to close after this weekend. Still, it should be a good weekend for skiers with another eight to ten inches of fresh powder. Elsewhere on the mountain, it was a good day for students because a snow day was called for Rim of the World Unified School District.

One parent said she was not shocked when a snow day was called in because she said there was an extra snow day built into the school calendar already. She said, "I'm sure the teachers in the school district are very happy."

The maintenance crews however, may not have been so happy. They worked all morning to clear snow at Rim of the World High school. It's been quite a while since they've had to do this kind of clean up this late in the school year.

"This late in April is a little unusual. It's been a really unique year," said Dennis Klein, Rim of the World Unified School District.
