Here's a YouTube video from my dashcam. On Tuesday, April 7, 2015, we had a major snowstorm in the Sierras. I was heading back to Sacramento from Reno. This video occurred just above Emigrant Gap, about 5500 feet elevation. I had chains on, but Caltrans wasn't plowing the roads. They weren't expecting the storm, I guess no one there watches the news. In this video, I'm on a steep downhill grade. I hit my brakes and started sliding. You can see the rest for yourself. I'm just grateful I had an escape to the right of the two cars.
