The R-C Morning Report

Tonight is the 12th annual Mountain Madness football game between Douglas High's seniors and junior girls. Admission is $5 and kickoff is 6 p.m. There's also tug-of-war, milk chugging and lip syncing contests during the evening. It's also students' first chance to pick up their yearbooks.

Speaking of annuals, the Carson Valley Almanac is out today. Our subscribers received their copy with the newspaper. We will also be distributing the newspaper and the Almanac free to some neighborhoods, and copies of the magazine will be available at the offices of The Record-Courier. Copies of the paper in newsstands will not include the magazine.

Early voting continues 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today at the Douglas County Clerk's Office. As of end of business on Thursday, 1,813 voters had cast their ballots early, or 5.5 percent of the county's electorate.

It rained early this morning and that rain has turned to ice in my part of the Valley at least. There are travel restrictions on a few roads in the Sierra, including over Highway 88 from Woodfords to Hams Station on the West Slope, on Highway 89 between Sorensens and South Lake Tahoe and over Kingsbury Grade. There's also road construction on Kingsbury and Highway 395 at the Douglas County line.

The storm brought some more snow to the Sierra. According to Natural Resource Conservation Service telemetry, 13 inches fell at Ebbett's Pass as of midnight. That translated into 1.2 more inches of water locked up in the snow. Heavenly Valley received 3 more inches of snow.
