The first thing resembling snow in Genoa fell on Thursday morning. The forecast calls for the possibility of flurries this morning and scattered rain and snow this afternoon and evening.

Genoa, Nev, — China Spring Director Wendy Garrison confirmed Wednesday that she is retiring after 30 years at the youth camp. It was a rough last few years between the fires, coronavirus and funding issues.
On Monday, the China Spring Youth Camp Executive Committee will discuss Garrison’s role in her last days as director and the process for recruiting a new one.
I expect today’s Douglas County commissioners meeting on funding the East Fork levee repairs to be a fairly short one. The commissioners meet 10 a.m. at 1616 Eighth St., Minden. You can watch online at www.douglascountynv.gov
The Vacation Home Rental Advisory Committee met for about four hours on density of homes in Lincoln Park just south of Cave Rock. That neighborhood has narrow streets and a gnarly single access onto Highway 50. It sounds like at least two of the seven permits may be eliminated through a lottery.
I expect all that will be included in the county’s revision of the ordinance to eliminate VHRs north of Cave Rock, but we’ll see how all that shakes out.
There might be some light snow or rain at today’s Christmas Kickoff in Gardnerville’s Heritage Park. The wind is forecast to be around 7 mph, which shouldn’t hinder the fireworks at around 6:30 p.m.
Otherwise the forecast calls for scattered rain or snow showers and a high temperature today of 46 degrees. There isn’t any expectation any snow will stick or there will even be that much rain.
