Douglas County planning commissioners meet this morning to debate approval of the 10-year update of the master plan. The meeting is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. in the Douglas County Administrative Building, 1616 Eighth St. Whatever action the planning commission takes this morning will be forwarded to the Douglas County commissioners.

It’s sprinkling out this morning and there are a few squalls wandering around the Valley as the temperature hit 48 degrees before sunrise, which is only three degrees cooler than Monday’s high in Minden. The National Weather Service is forecasting that a big, cold low-pressure system is heading this way. Whether it will turn or not will determine what we’re doing this weekend, that’s for sure. Should it actually arrive, snow levels will drop to the Valley floor.

Like the man said, “Locks keep honest people honest.”
