Happy Halloween, or as we call it around here, real Nevada Day, which we celebrate by dressing in costume and asking strangers for candy. As an alternative, or perhaps in preparation, Trick-or-Treat Safety Street is at the CVIC Hall 3-8 p.m. today. Entrance is $3. And several lucky guys or ghouls could ride out on a new bicycle.
For those looking for more hallowed and less ween, Calvary Chapel’s harvest festival is 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Trinity Lutheran Church Trunk or Treat is 5-7 p.m. here in Gardnerville.
Trick-or-Treaters will be out after dark tonight, so keep a weather eye out for them as they wander the streets. For those who are going to parties, make sure to designate a driver or take a cab home. There’s nothing scarier than a drunken driver.
The fog was back this morning, though a little thinner along Highway 395 between Genoa and Muller lanes. It’s cold out, too, with the low hitting 28 this morning. Tonight the temperature will drop after sunset, and there won’t be any moon, so carry a light and dress warm.
We might see the temperature crack 60 degrees today according to the forecast, with temperatures climbing into the 70s by Saturday. By Sunday, the weather will remember that it’s November with the high dropping back down into the upper 40s.
