Video: Insane blizzard slams California – Strands hundreds on Donner Pass Atmospheric River

One of the most intense #blizzards I have been in anywhere in the country slammed #California for multiple days. Interstate 80 was turned into a parking lot stranding hundreds with intense winds with heavy blowing snow. Semi-trucks littered the road as CHP and CalTrans tried to get everyone unstuck on Donner Pass. Earlier in the day white out conditions and heavy #snow caused motorists to get stuck all over the pass. We pulled out many vehicles. Plows worked overtime trying to keep up as feet of snow fell. Winds were well over 100 mph on the pass at times.
