The Owens Valley got its Christmas snow, all right. It just waited until mid-evening – about 9 p.m. – to show up, surprising most weather forecasters and torturing holiday motorists. Residents were greeted Wednesday morning with chain or 4-wheel drive with snow tire requirements on U.S. 395 from south of Olancha to the Nevada border as 3-6 inches of snow blanketed the valley just in time for the morning commute. A 20 percent chance of snow continued into Wednesday evening, followed by a week of cold and dry with a typical winter mix of clouds and sun.
