The Morning R-C

by Kurt Hildebrand

It’s meeting week, so take a deep breath, because ready or not, it’s here. On Tuesday the towns of Gardnerville and Genoa hold their regular sessions. On Wednesday, Douglas County commissioners begin their two-day marathon master plan and other stuff meetings. Wednesday night the town of Minden meets and on Thursday commissioners wrap up. We’ll talk about what happens as the week progresses.

By Friday, everyone should be ready for a nice rest.

What’s that? Over on the horizon. It’s a chance that something will fall from the sky. The National Weather Service is betting on snow with a 50 percent chance of precipitation on Friday night and through the weekend. It’s a long shot at this point, but it is winter, and all these sunny days are bringing me down. Speaking of which, it will be mostly sunny today with a high of 46. The temperature at sunrise is a whopping 11 degrees in Genoa and 12 degrees in Minden.

Watch out for construction workers along Highway 395 between Johnson Lane and Stephanie Way. The speed limit will drop to 55 mph all this week while they complete utilities work on the shoulder. Work starts at 7 a.m
