The Owens Valley woke up, happily, Friday morning to a blanket of snow down to 4,500-5,000 feet in the Sierra and a healthy blanket of white on the White Mountains (above) after the Eastern Sierra saw its first precipitation in what seemed like an eternity Thursday morning. The small storm dropped just over a foot on Mammoth Mountain and more at Lake Tahoe. Rain totals for Bishop reached .04 inches over 24 hours on Thursday with an additional spattering Friday night.
Miss California USAâs Miss Congeniality is headed to New York to appear on the âKatie Couric Showâ this week.

Blum said Thursday she has been invited to appear on the show to discuss her experience in the Miss California USA Pageant held Jan. 2-4 in Long Beach.
