Genoa, Nev. — Today is the last day to participate in the online Douglas County strategic planning survey unless the county extends it again.

Today is the first day you can file to run for president. It will be interesting to see what major and minor party candidates file over the next two weeks. Nonpartisans can’t file until Jan. 5, if they’ve got $250 and slightly more than 10,000 signatures.

No one opted for an ambulance ride after a two-SUV collision around 2:40 p.m. Friday knocked one of them into a field at Johnson Lane and East Valley Road. A motorcyclist was transported to Barton in South Lake Tahoe after he went down on Highway 50 just above Golf Course around 3:45 p.m. Sunday.

Most of the rain over the weekend didn’t contribute to the record 2022-23 water year, because the clock stops at 5 p.m. Saturday, I’m told. The total I have of 23.86 inches since Oct. 1, 2022, is pretty close to the mark, and easily topped the 2016-17 water year.

It dropped below freezing in Douglas County this morning … near the top of the Carson Range. For those of us in lower climes, it didn’t get below 40 most places as the cloud cover stuck around longer than anticipated.

That means it’s going to be cloudier than expected today, though the sun will be out with the forecast high of 64 degrees. Tonight the low is forecast to drop to 38 degrees, which is sort of where it will be for the rest of the week.
