The R-C Morning Report for April 28
April 28, 2016
Genoa, Nev. — Carson Pass on Highway 88 and the Mount Rose Highway appear to be the only road controls out in the world this morning. Both the Nevada Highway Patrol and California Highway Patrol boards were showing Western Nevada and Eastern California to be accident free as of 6:30 p.m.
We'll be following up on Wednesday's manhunt today, hopefully with enough detail to sort out at least what happened and maybe why.
While the weather has prompted the cancellation of the Astronomical Society of Nevada's Star Party, the Birds and Buckaroo's photographer show will still take place at the River Fork Ranch in Genoa to kick off the town's annual Cowboy Festival.
I'm told there are still a few seats left for Friday's Wylie & the Wild West concert. You can buy them at http://www.genoacowboyfestival.org There are a lot of things going on during the day on Friday, including watching the Young Chautauquans conduct a presidential debate featuring past presidents.
A fifth of an inch fell overnight north Genoa while .15 inches fell in Fish Springs and a tenth of an inch fell in the Gardnerville Ranchos. I don't have Minden's total yet, but all it needs is another quarter of an inch to get into the top 10 Aprils.
While the window for that is closing, there's still a chance for more moisture today and Friday night. Scattered showers are forecast for after 11 a.m., with partly sunny skies and a high near 60. The wind will be out of the north at 5-10 mph.
