Rain here at Big Pine off and on since about 11:30 this morning. Local radio reports snowfall at Mammoth Village, snow on the ground at Mammoth Mountain.
About 1:00 my wife and I took a quick drive up to Glacier Lodge, above Big Pine. When we went the clouds had broke up a bit, but it was still flurrying snow and some frozen rain. Remains of a slight dusting of snow remained on the ground at the lodge.
The store was at the lodge was still open. My wife found a Cannon digital camcorder on the bridge over Big Pine Creek. It was soaked, so probably damaged. The battery was dead, so I couldn't check. We turned it in to the proprietors at the lodge.
