A woman reported a vehicle drove into her kitchen on Bumblebee in the Gardnerville Ranchos around 4:45 p.m. Thursday. Emergency services responded and found there was most certainly a vehicle parked in the house. I didn’t hear any report of serious injuries.

Douglas County commissioners approved $520,000 for the Lake Tahoe microtransit system and a redesign of the second phase of Tahoe Beach Club at their Thursday meeting.

The famous Kingsbury fifth-wheel has finally been towed off, to everyone’s relief. Highway 395 remains closed from Bridgeport to Lee Vining. Highway 88 is also closed from 3.5 miles east of Silver Lake to Kirkwood.

Douglas High School’s JrROTC is conducing a food drive for the Carson Valley Community Food Closet at the Smith’s in Gardnerville 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

NDOW’s Heather Reich will have her Karellian bear dogs at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center 11 a.m. Saturday as part of Family Day.

With Interstate 80 open Wednesday’s R-C should be distributed today. We cleared Saturday last night, so it will be on the truck as well, allowing us to dodge whatever madness the weather has in store.

That madness will start with a wind advisory 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday with forecast 25-35 mph winds gusting to 55 mph. There could be some snow showers, but the winter weather advisory kicks off at 10 p.m. Saturday. While there’s only 2-5 inches in store for the Valley, high winds could reduce visibility.

We’ll have the sun today with a high temperature near 42 degrees and virtually no wind. There’s a chance of snow after 4 a.m. Saturday.
