Residents in the local mountains will be putting their snow shovels and plows to work yet again on Friday after new overnight snowfall.

The Grapevine remained open, but drivers can expect fog and wet roads.

Students in the the Rim of the World Unified School District in San Bernardino County will have a longer weekend thanks to the snow. A snow day was declared for all schools in the district on Friday.

Skiers and snowboarders are making the most of the conditions. It's good news for local businesses, because they rely on people coming up for the weekend. Residents said while it's good, it's also a lot of work.

"It's really nasty, wet snow. They refer to it as Sierra cement. That's kind of a typical slang term for it and it's really heavy," Wayne Kresin of Frazier Park.

Utility workers also were kept busy, because of some power outages up in Frazier this week. Officials said most of the power has been restored.
