Genoa, Nev. — A 90-minute power outage 6:45 p.m. Sunday affected around 2,500 Douglas County homes and businesses at its peak, according to a spokeswoman for NVEnergy. She said that power was restored in phases with most people back online by 8:30 p.m. The cause appears to have been birds in the lines.
Douglas County Public Library trustees are scheduled to discuss acceptance of an $11,389 Nevada State Collection Development Grant to use to buy books, library materials and computer databases. The board meets 10 a.m. today at the Zephyr Cove Branch.
Not quite as much smoke drifted into Carson Valley from the Quarry fire last night as Saturday. The fire grew to about 300 acres to 1,774 acres on Monday. It appears from the heat map that the fire burned through the night. Forecasters expect that we’ll see more smoke from the fire this afternoon and evening.
Temperatures are expected to dip into the 50s on Saturday with the snow level dropping to 6,900 feet on Saturday night as the temperature drops to near freezing. The snow level will go back up to 7,700 feet on Sunday.
Quarry fire info folks are having difficulty updating the Inciweb site, which is why it’s been stuck on 596 acres for the last five days. Some things that we may lose should the government shut down on Saturday is a lot of online fire and weather information.
