Wow. As soon as I saw Truckee mentioned, I knew it was a weather related event. :(

Used to fly in/out of Truckee frequently many years ago. I would take students up there for moutain training in helicopters. Very unforgiving airspace for an airplane in bad weather.
B-) Life may not be the party you hoped for, but while you're here, you may as well dance. B-)

Pretty unforgiving for ground vehicles too, as you try to get through Donner Pass. And on foot, as the party after which the pass is named discovered.
