    We are full time RVers and we are up in Lytle Creek of the 15 freeway and Sierra. This is what we saw this morning.

    Another spring storm is bringing snow and chain controls to the Sierra Nevada.
         
    Chains or snow tires are required on Highway 88 over Carson Pass, while Interstate 80 over Donner Summit and U.S. 50 over Echo Summit are open with no controls.

    The Boreal and Soda Springs ski resorts atop Donner Summit report 3 inches of new snow for a storm total of up to 9 inches of snow.

    Water officials say the storm is not expected to provide a major boost to the Sierra's snowpack, which is below average for a third straight winter.

    The Nevada Highway Patrol reported several weather-related accidents this morning on U.S. 395 north of Reno.
