BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Twenty years ago, thousands of people in Bakersfield woke up to six inches of snow covering buildings, streets and yards.

On Jan. 25, 1999, a snow storm hit Bakersfield, and forced classes to be canceled for students and teachers.

If anyone has any memories or pictures from the snow day, be sure to share them on our 23ABC News Facebook page. We will have coverage of the anniversary on our newscasts.
