While many of us were dealing with rain and gusty winds, residents in the mountains seemed to enjoy the change in the forecast

All of the residents 23 ABC spoke to today said the weather for them was nothing out of the ordinary.

One minute it's raining and the next it's not.

But the wind chill had many hurrying home to bundle up.

As Bakersfield dealt with fallen trees and power outages, Tehachapi residents enjoyed a relatively peaceful day only seeing about a tenth of an inch of rain.

But if you looked at the mountains you could see patches of white, from the little bit of snow that stuck.

And as temperatures dipped towards freezing, residents said the wind chill was the worst part with gusts reported around 38 miles-per-hour.

Tehachapi residents Bill Feliciano and David Duvall said they enjoyed all the rain but could have done without the wind.

The cold front that we felt today did bring the temperatures down by around 20 degrees and the wind chill made things feel even colder with temperatures dropping into the 20s.

All of the residents I spoke to today said they were happy to have the rain, but couldn't wait to get home and bundle up and get out of the cold.
