Genoa, Nev. — A stranded motorist in the Pine Nuts near Sunrise Pass Road was helped by Douglas County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue on Thursday night. From the radio traffic, it sounded like the region around Lebo Springs is pretty marshy, so prepare accordingly.
The marshy section of Carson Valley west of Highway 395 is getting another aerial dose of mosquito adulticide again this morning. The plane belongs to Frey Spray out of Fallon.
Douglas High School’s Class of 1978 will be celebrating their 45th on Saturday with a game of pickleball at the community center 10 a.m. to noon. Class members will have to call Rob Ellison at 503-348-6233for reservations to play, but the no-host gathering on the patio at JT Basque Bar & Dining Room 5 p.m. just requires folks to turn up.
“Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” is showing at Heritage Park in Gardnerville tonight. The movie starts after sundown.
Fire restrictions are in effect on state and federal lands across Western Nevada. I expect that the U.S. Forest Service will be weighing in for the Carson and Bridgeport Ranger Districts pretty soon. Most of the driest fuels are below 7,000-8,000 feet.
Less overnight cloudiness let the heat out last night with much of the Valley posting far cooler temperatures than on Wednesday morning. It’s 55 degrees at Minden-Tahoe Airport and 60 in Genoa this morning.
The forecast calls for another sunny day, with the high temperature hitting 92 with the wind out of the west at 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph at times. Cut and paste that for the rest of the weekend.
