Genoa, Nev. — Registration and packet pickup for this morning’s Turkey Trot will run through 8:45 a.m. with the actual trot starting at 9 a.m. Carson Valley Community Food Closet Director Sarah Sanchez said they’d almost reached their goal of 400 virtual and in-person sign-ups. I wager a big percentage of those folks will be at Minden Park this morning.
It’s Thanksgiving today and many stores and restaurants are sporting signs that they’re closed today. I’ll do a brief scout after the Turkey Trot and see what’s open in Minden and Gardnerville, but besides the casinos, you might be on your own.
Wednesday is reportedly one of the busiest travel days of the year. It was certainly the busiest travel day for humongous boats through Carson Valley as the Spirit of Tahoe made way up Highway 395.
If you’re headed to grandma’s house today, the roads are relatively clear. I would gas up on this side of the hill. I spent $15 on three gallons of gas in Applegate along Interstate 80 on Monday.
The boards for the California Highway Patrol and the agency formerly known as the Nevada Highway Patrol are showing clear for Western Nevada. There was roadwork both on 50 and 80 on Monday, but no sign of it on the California traffic app this morning.
Unlike Wednesday morning’s brief flirtation with 12 degrees at the Minden-Tahoe Airport, this morning up and married it. Dress warm if you’re out early and stoke the fire if you’re not. Expect a high of 54 degrees under mostly sunny skies, perfect weather for tossing the football around while waiting for the game.
