The storm dropped about two to four inches of snow overnight, above the 7,000 foot level.
N-DOT wasn't caught off-guard...crews were lined up at the summit. They had the roads cleared by the morning commute. Workers say, even when the roads are clear, they're still icy...and drivers should slow down and give themselves plenty of time.
On the other hand, local ski resorts welcomed this most recent October storm. They had a record snowfall last year, starting around October, which allowed them to open early.
Mount Rose hopes for the same this year.
Crews want to start making snow...but the ground isn't cold enough.
It was about 36 degrees today...they need it to be well below freezing or any snow they make turns into a puddly mess.
