Ten inches of snow was recorded earlier this month at the National Weather Service station on the north edge of Reno, Nev., next to Truckee Meadows Community College. A foot of new snow was reported at Mount Rose, in the background, about 20 miles southwest of the city. Up to 18 inches of wet, heavy snow fell along the Sierra's eastern front on Tuesday, causing spinouts on Interstate 80, closing schools in Reno and Sparks and leaving tens of thousands of northern Nevadans without power.
