Traveling through California’s Grapevine on Sunday? What to know about the big storm

Original story below:
Anyone finishing off the holiday weekend with a trip home through the Sierra foothills might want to start early as snow levels could drop to 2,000 feet and forecasters say higher elevations could get hammered with up to a foot of snow. Sunday evening.
The National Weather Service in Hanford cautioned that travel could be nearly impossible during a storm that is expected to roll in between 4 and 6 p.m.
“The next system will be coming in this afternoon, so we went ahead and issued a winter storm warning for the foothills, and we’ve been carrying a winter storm warning for the higher levels of the Sierra,” said Jeff Barlow, senior meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
“That’s going to start today at 4 o’clock, so we have a little break here to catch our breath and then we have this next system coming in (Sunday night) and pretty much lasting through most of the day (Monday). We’re seeing potentially eight to 16 inches of snow, and the lower amounts will be in the lower elevations, but we’re looking at snow levels to get down potentially to as low as 2,000 feet, and that would include Auberry, Oakhurst, and Three Rivers, and some of the lower-elevations communities in the foothills.”
At the higher elevations above 6,000 feet, the storm could bring two to four feet of snow.
“It’s another big one coming in (Sunday night),” Barlow said.
Travel could be impacted through the Grapevine and Tehachapi Pass, and a winter weather advisory has been issued, though the storm is not expected to impact the south valley until early Monday morning, around 4 a.m.
“With tonight’s system, we’ll see a little more snow with this one down in the south,” Barlow said. “But we’ve been in collaboration with Cal Trans, and they’re ready, they’re prepared.
“They have all the trucks and the plows. We’re making sure because it is such a high-impact travel day with a lot of people heading home with the Christmas holiday. We’ve been working very close with them to make sure the Grapevine stays open, but tomorrow morning will be interesting because a lot of people in the foothills are going to wake up to a nice, fresh dusting of snow. The storm that’s moving in tonight, this is going to be another pretty high-impact event, especially in the lower communities.”
There was an outside chance that Fresno could see a mix of rain and snow on Tuesday, but the snowflakes at least are unlikely with the snow level not expected to dip below 1,500 feet.

How gas prices have changed in California in the last week
Gasoline prices, on average, continued to soar past the $4.50 per gallon mark over the last week and into Monday. Diesel, at $5.55 per gallon, has cooled off by two cents from its record high set on May 18, according to AAA.
Experts note that while crude oil prices are down from the highs seen in March, gasoline is still breaking records on a national and local level. While these prices generally tend to move in sync, the current mismatch is due primarily to refining costs—or the crack spread—being so high.
The crack spread is the difference between the purchase price of crude oil and the selling price of finished products after refining. This added cost is absorbed by consumers. Historically, the refining process added $10.50 to the overall cost per barrel. Today, that crack spread is over $40 per barrel.
Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in California using data from AAA. Gas prices are as of June 13. Cheapest gas stations are from GasBuddy. The state gas tax data is from World Population Review. Connecticut and Georgia have temporarily suspended gas taxes to help consumers while the cost of gas has increased.

Fresno and Madera County tribes get housing help for COVID relief. Here are their plans

Over $2 million in federal housing grants is being awarded to two American Indian tribes in the foothills above the central San Joaquin Valley to help alleviate COVID-19 impacts.
The money will help Mono tribal members at rancherias in eastern Fresno and Madera counties. Big Sandy Rancheria in Auberry, and the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians in North Fork, are each being awarded an Indian Community Development Block Grant via the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development totaling a little over $1 million.
It’s part of the American Rescue Plan that President Joe Biden signed in 2021, which promised $750 million in HUD dollars to help American Indian tribes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The federal agency administering the grants announced Tuesday evening that Big Sandy Rancheria will use their new $1,027,890 grant to purchase land that includes three buildings with 14,300 square feet of space that will provide medical services to families impacted by COVID-19. HUD said North Fork Rancheria will use their $1,035,000 grant to acquire three homes that will help alleviate the housing shortage.
HUD said these grants to tribes are meant to “help protect the health and safety of their communities, particularly low- and moderate-income individuals and families, by expanding access to safe housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities.”
Nearly $12 million was awarded to 11 Native American tribes in California – $83 million to 74 tribes in all across the country – under this third round of grant funding.
The American Rescue Plan promises $280 million in these grants. That leaves $71 million still to be awarded. HUD said future awards will be announced on a rolling basis.
That’s in addition to $450 million in different HUD grants, Indian Housing Block Grants, that were awarded last year.
American Indians have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. One study published last year found that Native Americans were dying from the virus at substantially higher rates than other groups before vaccines became widely available.
LPG Spotlight: Mountain Flame Propane

When a wildfire’s route changed course and moved toward a residential community, Mountain Flame Propane stayed present, even amidst evacuations.
On Sept. 4, 2020, a fire began to ignite in the town of Big Creek, California. The area is known for fires and is “somewhat remote,” explains Jason Rinker, co-owner and vice president of Mountain Flame Propane, which serves mostly residential customers in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
The fire – which eventually became known as Creek Fire – was expected to move north into the Huntington Lake area, a hub for summer homes with many of its residents having already left for the season. Generally, the community expected a “normal” fire, Rinker says.
“Then, the wind shifted and pushed it south,” he says. “It moved into the Shaver Lake area within a day or two. That then started causing mandatory evacuations and a massive fire response.”
At that point, as the fire moved south toward the company’s headquarters in Auberry, California, residents had to evacuate quickly. In a typical wildfire evacuation, customers would call the propane retailer for basic instructions on how to turn off their propane tanks and prepare them for the fire. This time, however, Mountain Flame Propane received almost no customer calls due to the haste of the evacuation, Rinker says.
The fire destroyed 856 buildings, he says, estimating that about 350 of his customers’ homes burned down. Despite it all, Mountain Flame Propane remained open. In fact, with its headquarters needing to evacuate, the retailer established a remote office location so that it could remain present throughout the fire.
Mountain Flame Propane worked closely with the local fire department, which set up a command center at a local high school. If needed, Mountain Flame Propane staff helped firefighters with incident management, mitigating flaring propane tanks and open gas lines.
When the fire was under control, Mountain Flame Propane assisted in the clean-up process regarding propane tanks. The fire department trained the retailer’s staff on fire and safety tips and how to wear the required fire-resistant gear. The goal then was to inspect all propane tanks where the fire went through, determine the severity of the damage and pull all hazardous tanks.
Rinker and his brother, Ryan Rinker, who co-owns Mountain Flame Propane, developed a digital reporting app, where users could track each tank, take photos of the serial numbers and GPS the location so that team members could identify which tanks were visually inspected and deemed a hazard.
The retailer also helped lead tank-tagging efforts to determine which tanks needed to be removed and replaced. A green ribbon tied to a tank indicated it had little-to-no damage from the fire. Conversely, a red ribbon signaled damage that needed to be prioritized in pickups.
The fire ultimately burned nearly 380,000 acres and was not announced as 100 percent contained until Dec. 24.
Rinker encourages other retailers to contact their local fire departments to learn how to respond to fires that cause mass evacuations. In addition, enduring the fire has brought the community together, he says, and Mountain Flame Propane is proud to have been part of that, deeming the efforts “a labor of love.”

Auberry family says Harris and Newsom trespassed in damaged home for photo op

FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (FOX26 NEWS) — An Auberry family says California Governor Gavin Newsom and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris trespassed during their tour of Creek Fire damage.
During the trip, Harris and Newsom were briefed by Cal Fire and U.S. Forest Service officials about the challenges they've faced with this fire.
Newsom and Harris stopped by Pine Ridge Elementary in Auberry, before going across the street to look around a burned down home.
Senator Harris commented that many residential areas had been badly impacted.
"The fire just swept through. So everything is gone except the chimney. Those chimneys, they remind me - when you look at a neighborhood that's been wiped out, those chimneys remind me of tombstones."
In several Facebook posts shared since then, the homeowner's family says neither Harris or Newsom had the right to be on their property.
Trampas Patten says that he is the son of the homeowners and thinks the home was merely used for a photo op.
"What has me really frustrated right now is the fact that these two politicians used my parents loss for a photo opportunity to push their political agenda! Political party wouldn’t have made a difference in this moment. Decent human beings that have character and class, wouldn’t air someone else’s misfortune on national television!" Trampas wrote in a Facebook post.
He says that his parents never gave permission for Harris or Newsom to enter their property.
His sister, Bailee Patten, adds that her family hasn't even had to opportunity to visit the home themselves.
"When we saw those photos, it was - there aren't words, because it's like, we haven't even seen our house. We haven't seen our property. There is no house, we haven't even seen our property."
The home on Auberry Road is still under an evacuation order, so the owners have not been able to check up on their property themselves yet.
"This isn't just devastation, this is our lives. This is where we grew up, these are our memories. And to not have that - to feel so helpless - and I guess that's what we've all been thinking, is that we were so helpless. Because we weren't there, we haven't gotten to deal with our loss. Instead, we're having to watch it play out on social media and news."
Senator Harris told reporters filming her around the property, "These are the stories behind these fires."
She continued, "The people who are victimized by these, they could care less - and their children could care less - who they voted for in the last election."
Patten says that community should not be classified as victims.
"We're survivors. We're gonna get through this, but the whole community has lost. And to just take a picture of one loss, it's not enough."
She says that neither Newsom or Harris have reached out to see if the family needs any help.
During the stop, Newsom and Harris placed some of the blame for the Creek Fire on climate change.
"It is incumbent on us, in terms of the leadership of our nation, to take seriously the extreme changes in our climate," Harris said.
"Do you want this kind of leadership, using you and your loss for political gain?!" Trampas Patten asked in his post.
"What you did do is take my families loss and parade it all over social media and news networks to push your agenda," Bailee Patten wrote on Facebook.
FOX26 News has reached out to the Communications teams for both Governor Newsom and Senator Harris.
We haven't heard back from Governor Newsom.
Senator Harris's Communications Director, when asked for a statement, told FOX26 News Reporter Marie Edinger over the phone, "I'm not going to have anything about that," and declined to comment further.
