The 20thannual Markleeville Creek Day is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Email Taylor Norton at awg.snap.rm@gmailif you plan on helping out and don’t forget your work gloves. 

In the Valley, the Monarch Conservation Workshop is 1-4:30 p.m. at the River Fork Ranch in Genoa. They’d also like notice you’re dropping by at

Despite the frost advisory, most of Carson Valley didn’t get down below 32 degrees this morning with the exception of Minden-Tahoe Airport, which was at 28 degrees at 6 a.m. It was actually colder on Tuesday morning. 

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be concerned about keeping the tomatoes alive much longer. I may repeat last winter’s experiment to bring mine to see if I can keep them alive for another season. 

Today expect sunny skies and a high of 70 degrees. The danger of frost should pass by 8 a.m. The wind is expected to remain calm at 5 mph.
