Genoa, Nev. — Home Ranch for the Holidays starts its second week of antique toy displays 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. today at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park, 1450 Highway 88, Minden. They’ll be back the same times Saturday and Sunday. Admission is a $5 donation. Go to Dangberg.org for more information.
The students of Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School are inviting people to attend their “Night of Artistry” 5:30 p.m. at the school, located at 701 Long Valley Road in the Gardnerville Ranchos. The show’s free, but the exit will be through the gift shop, which is featuring students’ artwork for sale.
I’ll follow up today on Tuesday’s Vacation Home Rental Advisory Committee meeting that ran until well into the evening. They were still going some seven hours after the meeting started at 1 p.m.
The elevation on a winter weather advisory is up to 5,000 feet starting 8 p.m. and lasting through 4 p.m. Thursday, a sign some of the enthusiasm forecasters had for this storm is waning a bit. We’re likely to see a rain-snow mix in the Valley.
Any lake effect snows that occur from this storm are expected to hit Alpine County and other points southeast of Lake Tahoe. That might include parts of southern Carson Valley, though.
Today will be likely be a bit sunnier than Tuesday with a high temperature near 55 degrees and the wind out of the east before it pulls a 180 to the west at 5-15 mph as the front approaches. We might see rain after 10 p.m. mixing with snow around 4 a.m. Thursday.
