Genoa, Nev. — Discussion of piping 920 feet of the Henningsen Ditch returns to the Douglas County Water Conveyance Committee 4 p.m. today. Debate on the proposal, located along Highway 395 north of Riverview, was tabled in December while the applicants redesigned the pipeline. The committee meets in Room 306 of the Minden Inn, 1594 Esmeralda Ave.
A power line down at Plymouth Drive and Hobo Hot Springs affected about two-dozen NV Energy customers in Indian Hills. Despite snow through most of the day, that was pretty much the worst of it for Sunday.
Douglas County school buses will be picking Lake Tahoe students up at main stops only this morning as a result of Sunday’s snowfall. Chains or snow tires are required from halfway up the Valley side of Kingsbury to the Lake and on Highway 50.
The commute might be a little slippery this morning, so give yourself plenty of time to get where you’re going. Any roads that were wet when the sun went down are likely icy now.
Sunday’s was a reasonably wet storm with around .6 inches of moisture near Genoa and better than 2 inches of snow falling in parts of the Valley during the day. Minden officially recorded .51 inches.
The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high temperature of 35 degrees. The wind will pick up out of the northwest at 5 mph this afternoon. Expect tonight’s low to drop into the teens.
