Genoa, Nev. — Medics transported a bicyclist from a collision with a Tesla on Andrea off Kingsbury Grade around 5 p.m. Sunday. There was also a transport from a Holbrook Junction collision between a sedan and a pickup hauling a trailer around 6:40 p.m. Saturday.

I don’t see anything new from the July 1 plane crash at Rubicon Bay at Lake Tahoe. One person received a head injury, but passing boaters rescued them both from the sinking aircraft. NTSB and the FAA are on the case.

We had a little power blip around 5 a.m. today, but it wasn’t enough to show up on the outage site. Don’t be surprised if there are more of those in the middle of the day as temperatures rise.

The East Fork of the Carson River at Horseshoe Bend is running about 400 cubic feet per second lower than the forecast 3,050 cfs as of 6 a.m. today, which translates to 12.41 feet. The West Fork at Woodfords crested around 3:30 a.m. today at 12.6 feet, which is 599 cubic feet per second.

I got word there was water over Centerville on Sunday morning. With the high hitting 99 degrees in Minden, that is not a real surprise. The Natural Resources Conservation Service snow telemetry is zeroing out for most stations with only Blue Lakes showing 2.5 inches of snow water equivalent.

This year saw the 10th wettest June on record with 1.2 inches, which brought 2023 to within .04 inches of the 15.57-inch record for the calendar year set in 2017.

Today’s forecast calls for sunny skies and a high temperature of 93 degrees, with the wind out of the west at 15-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph this evening.
