The U.S. Forest Service was burning above Genoa for much of Thursday. Expect more of that in the coming days as the weather continues to be perfect. I spotted orange signs telling people not to call in the smoke on Genoa Lane, Jacks Valley Road and Centennial.
Douglas County’s coronavirus caseload continues to drop with 729 active cases and 1,650 recoveries as of Thursday. Douglas had five new cases and five recoveries, so it’s still out there.
Expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 53 degrees today with the wind picking up to 5 mph in the afternoon. It’ll warm up to the mid-50s over Super Bowl weekend, so nice weather to toss the pigskin around during halftime.
