Good Morning, Carson Valley: Dec. 3

Snow

We’re waiting on the winter storm that is inching its way into Reno and over Lake Tahoe. We’ve already eclipsed today’s forecasted daytime high of 35 (42 right now), but the temperatures are expected to drop at some point in the next few hours here.
The Douglas High boys and girls basketball teams  were scheduled to open their season tonight at home against Spanish Springs (Girls at 5:15 p.m.; Boys at 7 p.m.), but Washoe County has cancelled all athletic trips and games for this afternoon due to the snow. It’s the first time (at least in recent memory) outdoor conditions have jumbled the start of both the fall and winter seasons around here.
We reported yesterday that the unit Scolari’s occupied in the Carson Valley Fair shopping center will be broken up into three pieces starting at the first of the year. One tenant is already on lease for the biggest space (22,000 square feet) and a second is in negotiations for the second (18,000 square feet). The third (10,000) will be available for rent with no currently interested businesses in that spot.
We don’t know what tenants will be occupying those spaces (although Grocery Outlet, Whole Foods and Traders Joe’s – the three most highly-rumored for that center – have been ruled out for now). The news though, is that the shopping center won’t be entirely void of occupation in its largest space, which is good news for the current tenants.
That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there, be safe on the roads when and if this storm makes its way over here and have a great day!
