Genoa, Nev. — A collision snarled the S-Curve Highway 395 in Gardnerville around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and resulted in one person being transported to Carson Valley Medical Center.

A Carson Valley resident is far more likely to encounter ice walking down a sidewalk than on a pond. I know it’s warming up a bit, but there’s some treacherous footing out there still, so while not always possible, “Stay off the ice” is generally pretty good advice.

If you’ve been thinking about visiting the Carson Valley Lions’ See’s Candy trailer in the Frontier Communications parking lot, it might just be time. Ron Santi said they’ll be selling candy until it runs out.

I received some more addresses to include for Christmas lights on Wednesday. Today’s the last day to send me one, thanks to holiday print deadlines. Send them to or my email down below.

There aren’t any bomb cyclones in our forecast, but if you’re heading anywhere east of the Rockies, you might want to check the weather. I get the feeling that it’s going to be a rough ride to Grandma’s house.

We might actually see some rain tonight, with the forecast calling for cloudy skies and a high temperature of 45 degrees. The rain is forecast for some time between 10 p.m.. and 1 a.m. with a snow level of 7,500 feet. It shouldn’t be sufficient to melt the snowpack.
