Snowy Christmas Eve in the Sierra leads to frustrated drivers

It's a white Christmas Eve, but it's not exactly what all the drivers heading to the Sierra had in mind.

Some travelers like Mike Woodel are considering ditching their Christmas Eve tradition of visiting Truckee for the day and head back home. Tao Fung from the Bay Area says it's his second day trying to make it to Tahoe City.
