The most severe in the series of storms hit Monday morning.

Conditions were impressive enough to cause school closures for the El Tejon and Tehachapi Unified School Districts.

It also called for a snow day for some adults who didn't want to risk commuting to work in dangerous road conditions, such as Damon Bain, who commutes to Los Angeles for work.

"It's just safer for me to stay home than to try to commute through this, than to actually have an accident," said Bain.

Bain is also a loyal 23ABC viewer and said this morning's push alert, that he recieved on his cell phone aided his decision.

"You guys put out an alert this morning first thing, so I got that on my cell phone, because the cable was out because everything was frozen it seemed like."

Visitors commuting through the area also got a kick out of the winter weather.

"What is this water falling from the sky?" asked Asher Armstrong.

At 11-years-old, Asher, along with fellow science camp attendees all noted how cool the air felt down at the Grapevine.

"I have never experienced cold before," said Armstrong.

Although the storm has tapered off, a Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for elevations about 4,000 feet.
