Sacramento Fire crews are asking drivers to stay away from the area of Stone Creek Drive north of West El Camino. Multiple vehicles stuck in snow has caused a huge traffic snarl. Actual SNOW, not just hail! pic.twitter.com/badyXO0QB9— Sacramento Fire (@SacFirePIO) February 26, 2018

Interesting driving for fire crews that are out responded to emergencies right now. Several locations with many inches of sleet and hail in the roadway! pic.twitter.com/sMdGyFZez9— Sacramento Fire (@SacFirePIO) February 26, 2018
