Snow, rain, and accidents. Friday was a very active weather day across the Golden Empire, flooding streets and causing multiple accidents.
Snow was falling in the local mountains throughout the day, with several inches in some places.
Lorry Halks enjoyed it. "It's kind of weird, but it's kind of nice too. I love it."
In the valley, rain was the big story. It started early this morning and never stopped, bringing enough to break a record in Bakersfield.
All over town, accidents kept local law enforcement busy. On Highway 99 at Panama Lane a semi truck overturned in the slippery conditions.
By 2 p.m., the CHP had nine separate accidents officers responded to, not to mention all the others from earlier in the day.
On Brimhall Road, a motorist lost control of their SUV and hit a tree, flipping the SUV on its side.
With all of the accidents, no major injuries were reported.
"Slippery, of course. Very wet, but also slippery because of all the oil on the roads. I mean even with my little V6, I'm sliding around when I hit the gas, you know," said driver Kris Krill.
"A little hectic, lots of rain. Extra cautious, which is portably good so we don't have accidents," said driver Tom Strongin.
