First snow in the Almanor Basin
Residents of Lake Almanor Basin awoke this morning to see white flakes of snow falling from the dark cloud-streaked sky, and onto their homes, landscaping, and vehicles, Oct. 22. The first snow of the season has blanketed the town of Chester, and the smell of burning firewood has penetrated the air. Peterson’s Place on Main Street is one area in Chester that exemplifies the homey atmosphere that permeates this town during the fall and winter months. The snow covered rooftops and logs piled high in the bon fire radiate the simplistic beauty living in the mountains can offer.
