The Feb. 1 R-C Morning Report
Genoa, Nev. — County commissioners will get an early start today with two items related to the budget and the tire thefts at 10:30 a.m. today. After lunch, they’ll deal with a request from an 11-unit subdivision in Fish Springs that residents are opposing on the basis of a variance for the entrance.
The meeting times out at a round 4:10 p.m., but I bet it’s going to continue for longer, since I’ve no reason to believe the North Valley Wastewater Treatment Plant bids are going to go quietly. Part deux of the meeting starts at 1 p.m. and is at the historic Douglas Courthouse, 1616 Eighth St.
A rear-end collision at Riverview and Highway 395 at 5:40 p.m. Wednesday might have been the result of a seizure. I didn’t hear anyone transported as a result, but personnel on scene were discussing it.
After a disappointing January, Minden is officially behind in the water year, though not by much. January officially had .92 inches of moisture, well short of its average of 1.47 inches. That brings the total since Oct. 1 to 4.27 inches, or 96 percent of the average.
The high temperature on Tuesday was officially 70 degrees, but won’t make it into the Weather Service record books. Expect more warm temperatures and perhaps some records to fall. The record for Feb. 1 is 66 degrees, set in 1934.
The forecast for today is partly sunny skies and a high of 65 degrees. The wind will be out of the southwest at 5 mph, shifting north this afternoon, which will cool things down a few points. There’s no moisture in the forecast over the next week.
