Rio Ranchoans woke up to the sight of fresh white powder blanketing the area Wednesday morning.

Although snow began melting after sunrise, roads remained wet and pockets of snow were still visible as the morning drew to a close.

Drivers saw fields left and right covered in snow. As of about 10:20 a.m., snow was still present but gradually melting.
