Genoa, Nev. — Douglas County commissioners set aside two hours to discuss vacation home rentals today. The meeting starts at 10 a.m., but I’ve heard the board might not start on VHRs until this afternoon.
Commissioners are also expected to hear the coronavirus reopening plan. The board’s meeting in person at the historic Douglas County Courthouse, 1616 Eighth St., Minden. You can follow along at https://youtu.be/085RzBUJcAA
One new coronavirus case and five new recoveries dropped Douglas down to 97 active cases, according to Douglas County Emergency Managers. A total of 2,744 cases of the virus have been reported since March 2020, with 35 deaths.
A semi-truck went through the guardrail on Highway 395 near Conway Summit on Wednesday morning. The California Highway Patrol says it will be towed this morning, so take it easy through there if you’re on your way south.
Wednesday’s snow showers seem to have focused on the north Valley, with Johnson Lane receiving 4 inches. There was an inch and a half on my deck in Genoa at 6 a.m., but it was melting pretty fast. Minden reported an inch of snow and a fifth of an inch of moisture.
It’s a little nippy out at 27 degrees, but it should warm up quick with sunny skies and the wind out of the northwest 5-10 mph and the forecast high of 62 degrees.
