We’ve got a couple of events this weekend, including the GE Concert tonight, where I wager chairs are already starting to gather, the Northern Nevada Pond Tour in Douglas and Carson, and the Ruhenstroth Volunteer Fire Department 23rd annual barbecue and dinner-dance. For more happenings this week, pick up a copy of The Record-Courier on stands today.
I visited the Nevada Treasurer’s Office unclaimed property vault this morning to see if there was any money to me. I’d been in before, but frankly using a 42-cent stamp to claim $1.62 seemed like a losing proposition. But this morning I found a $20 rebate from virus software I’d purchased, so I printed out the form.

The record high temperature for July 14 in Minden is 103 degrees set in 1925, Monday’s forecast high temperature is 102. The National Weather Service has trotted out the hot graphics for next week, starting at 100 degrees on Sunday. Thunderstorms later in the week should help cool us down, assuming we don’t get another monsoon.
It’s a bit cloudy out this morning, but that should burn off soon so we’ll have sunny skies and a high near 89 degrees. A west wind will start out at 5-10 mph, then pick up in the afternoon to 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
Expect scattered morning reports next week as I’ll be on vacation. Have a great week.
