Genoa, Nev. — Spring break begins today in Douglas County, so you won’t see the usual bus traffic, but there will be kids walking to parks, the pool and a variety of other places, so keep an eye out for them.
“Wonder Park” is the after-school computer animated movie showing 3:30 p.m. today at the Douglas County Public Library, 1625 Library Lane in Minden.
What appeared to be a young bear was prowling around down by the river east of Genoa looking for an easy meal. We make sure there aren’t any food wrappers in our vehicles and the garbage doesn’t go out until after daybreak, because bears know when it’s garbage day.
It’s going to be a windy night tonight with gusts of up to 46 mph between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. A wind advisory takes effect 2 p.m. today and lasts through 11 a.m. Tuesday. We might see a little rain before 10 a.m. Tuesday.
A winter weather advisory arrives in the Sierra around Lake Tahoe 2 a.m. Tuesday above 6,500 feet. Forecasters don’t expect more than 5 inches of snow this side of Highway 89.
Minden cracked a half inch of moisture so far since Jan. 1, still a long ways from the average of 4.55 inches. Saturday’s storm brought .14 inches to the middle of the Valley and a trace of snow.
Today expect sunny skies with a high near 67 degrees and the wind out of the southwest at 10-15 mph, increasing to 20-25 mph in the afternoon, gusting to 35 mph.
