First snowfall of the season

On Dec. 14, Tehachapi braced for a winter storm that dumped up to 6 inches of snow in the valley and even more at the higher elevations. Several roads were temporarily closed because of the snow, including Hwy. 58 and Tehachapi-Willow Springs Rd.

Tehachapi area schools sent students home when the snowstorm began on Tuesday and remained closed through Dec. 16. Classes resumed on Friday, Dec. 17, just in time for a 2-week winter break starting on Dec. 20.
