City Proposes Sleigh Course
January 17, 1941
Unless there is a decided change in the weather and a quick thaw, the Susanville city council announces that it will block off Roop and North streets making them exclusive lanes for sleighing parties. Signs will be posted warning motorists that the streets are closed and available only to sleigh parties. Some 30 blocks will be included in the sleigh course.
Eight inches of snow fell in Susanville Monday and Monday night, the first heavy snow of the season. Some rain fell with snow yesterday morning, but it was believed the snowpack was heavy enough for sleighing.
The snow of Monday brought an additional .94 of an inch of rain, making the total for the season to date 10.76 inches. The official rainfall for the year 1940 was 26.31 inches.
