(Erik Skindrud | The GAZETTE)Friday, Dec. 12, 2014 - 10:15 a.m. - A much-hyped storm has delivered significant rain and snow, but few reports of flooding or damage.

This morning's town total was 1.63 inches. A Midpines gauge registered 2.25 inches.

The county's Badger Pass ski area reported 14 inches of snow. The resort is waiting for additional snow today before deciding on a Saturday opening. According to one forecast, as much as 10 additional inches could fall today. On the other hand, little rain was falling in town late Friday morning.

As of 10 a.m., the county had one weather-related power outage in the Yosemite community of Foresta. About 56 customers were affected, PG&E spokesman Denny Boyles said.

Across PG&E's Yosemite Division, however, a total of 226 outages were reported. The area covers Madera, Merced and Mariposa Counties and part of Tuolumne County, Boyles said.
