The R-C Morning Report for Jan. 14
Genoa, Nev. — California has a winner in the $1.58 billion lottery, but unless you bought your ticket in Chino Hills, it’s not you. Saturday’s jackpot is back down to a paltry $40 million.
Double Spring Flat continues to rattle around with the University of Nevada Seismology Lab reporting a 1.7 magnitude earthquake above Spring Valley Drive at 8:35 p.m. Tusesday. There have been nine quakes in the area over the last 48 hours, with the biggest being a 2.2 on Wednesday morning.
There’s a winter weather advisory in three directions, and all we’re getting is the wind. An advisory is in effect starting 7 p.m. for another blustery night. We had a 71 mph wind gust early Wednesday morning.
The Gardnerville Ranchos got a third of an inch of rain on Wednesday, which jibes with the squall that hit around 10 a.m. I’m showing a fifth of an inch in my digital gauge. My analog gauge is frozen solid so that reading will have to wait.
Today expect a small chance of rain or snow around 5 p.m. and mostly cloudy skies with the high temperature hitting 43 degrees. The low won’t quite drop below freezing tonight, which is bad news for those of us with snowy dirt roads.
