Snow was falling in our local mountains on Friday tempting many to take a "sick day" for a little fun. 

A powerful winter storm brought rains, street flooding and snow Thursday.

Two inches of snow fell on Mount Laguna overnight.  While there has not been a lot of accumulation of snow but for Friday, scattered snow showers will occur as low as the 4,000-foot level.

Oscar and Monique Leon of Chula Vista brought their  7-year-old daughter, Ivana, up to the snow for her birthday Thursday afternoon.

"It's really really beautiful it's really nice, I love it," Monique Leon said.

If you're thinking about heading to the snow, the California Highway Patrol wants to remind you to bring chains, extra clothes and be sure to purchase a mountain pass.

"We'll respond and a couple people will be stuck or whatever and we've got to help them out," said Greg Pelsma with the U.S. Forest Service.

"Just take it slow," he said. "And if you have chains, throw some chains on."
