More than 80 people turned out Wednesday night for the Park Cattle Co. presentation at the CVIC Hall in Minden. The crowd was split between those who oppose the project and those who had questions about it. Park Cattle is planning on going to the county with a development plan for 4,500 acres of land on three sides of Minden and Gardnerville.
We're still under a snow advisory with the National Weather Service predicting 1-3 inches falling in the Valley before 10 a.m. I'm estimating we got a quarter inch of powder over night. It looks like another pulse could be headed this way up from the south. R-C weather watcher Stan Kapler reported an inch and a quarter fell Tuesday night, but the snow is very dry.
It's faster to say where chains or snow tires aren't required this morning. That would Highway 395 between Johnson Lane and the county line. If the highway's anything like it was Wednesday morning, they might as well close it and rent skates at the entrances.
And yet, of the 15 entries on the Nevada Highway Patrol's Web site, a dozen are in Clark County, where I can guarantee you it hasn't snowed. The snow will continue here through Friday night when it turns to rain for the big storm that's coming. Then back to snow through Wednesday according to the forecast.
