Mother Nature will pull a Halloween trick on us starting at 11 a.m. today when a red flag warning goes into effect for Western Nevada, due to gusty winds and low humidity. Expect winds 15-25 mph gusting to 35 mph through 8 p.m.
Trick-or-Treat Safety Street kicks off today at 3 p.m. today. Entry is $3, but there's a lot of stuff for kids to win. There are also harvest festivals being sponsored all over Carson Valley. Have fun, but be careful. Today is also real Nevada Day, though we don't have a parade or day off to celebrate it. Happy 148th, Nevada. We'll just have to toast with some candy corn.
