Genoa, Nev. — Road controls are in effect over Kingsbury Grade and Spooner Summit this morning. The highways look pretty icy on the traffic cameras, so take it easy in the mountains.
The Vacation Home Rental Advisory Committee is hearing two appeals from owners who were fined and whose permits were pulled for advertising a higher occupancy than allowed. They meet 1 p.m. at Kahle Community Center.

Since the first day of spring didn’t start until around 2 p.m. Monday, it was technically still in effect when it started snowing on Tuesday morning. There wasn’t but a light dusting in Carson Valley.
I’ve got .39 inches in my rain gauge since Friday evening, which is reflected in the .44 inches in the gauge at Walley’s Hot Springs. Walley’s had the big number in the Valley followed by .32 inches down at the base of Jobs Peak.
The .06 inches of precipitation in Minden over the last two days was sufficient to increase total moisture to 20.04 inches for the water year, exceeding the 20-inch calendar year record set in 2017. With nine months left in 2023, it’s possible that calendar year designation could be dropped.
There’s a slight chance of rain and snow showers this afternoon, but the sun will be out, so the high temperature is forecast to hit 45 degrees. Don’t expect to see much in the way of wind today.
