Everyone Action News spoke with was grateful for the wet and cold weather. Fresno cleanup crews had a few issues through the city where drains were clogged up and there was some small flooding but nothing major. But the big question now on everyone's mind is how much more rain do we need to carry us out of this drought.

Sales of winter sport items spiked following the storm.

People headed to Herb Bauer Sporting Goods to stock up on snowboards and skis. Staff members say it has been a slow sales season but they're seeing more purchases following the snow near China Peak.

Families we spoke with were thrilled to head up to the resort.

"Today it's sparking up. I just sold a pair of boots and a snowboard," said Zach Reifeiss.

"I can't wait to get up to the snow and climb up the big hills and slide down it," said Emma Ledieff.
