Genoa, Nev. — Whatever magical weather pattern kept the smoke out of the Valley last night is more than welcome. I could see it hovering to the north on my way home last night and Carson City is in the unhealthy range this morning and Reno is at very unhealthy to hazardous.

The Public Restroom Co. premanufactured bathroom is going to be located next to the bus lane at Douglas High School near the portables and soccer field, where the school has been using Sani-Huts. There aren’t any bathrooms in those portable classrooms. The Seeman Ranch Pond Park bathrooms are also from the Minden company, so good job shopping local.

The Mosquito Fire is approaching 60,000 acres in size, but firefighters have a line around a quarter of it as of this morning. So far, 46 structures are reported to be lost to the blaze that has so far cost $25.5 million to fight.

The summer’s last Sierra Chef Farmer’s Market started 8 a.m. today in Gardnerville’s Heritage Park. They wrap up their season at 1 p.m. today. The Tuesday Minden Farmer’s Market has a couple of weeks to go yet.

A motorcyclist on a blue Harley blasted north from Woodfords through Minden and north to Carson Valley at 90-100 mph starting around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday. There was a brief pursuit, but deputies shut it down for safety’s sake. They may know where he came from, so this may not be the last we hear of the Blue Rider.

Our clear days may not last long with forecasters predicting smoke will be back tonight. The high temperature today will be around 79 degrees with the wind light and variable, picking up out of the west at 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph.
