GARDNERVILLE, Nev., February 9, 2015 – We’ve decided this weekend’s storm needs a name, so that when we look back on it 10 years from now, we’re not just calling it “That Storm That Blew Everyone’s Fence Down.”

Our favorite suggestion so far came from a reader yesterday afternoon who said we should call it the “Cedar Flat Storm,” due to the sheer volume of cedar plank fencing and trees knocked flat on the ground by the 90 mph winds.

Power remains out 65 NV Energy customers due to 15 different outages in Douglas County as of 7:00 a.m.

A good number of those 65 have been without power for up to 68 hours since Friday morning. Crews continue to work away at the remaining outages, though there is not a set estimated time of restoration.

FallinLoveE-MailTileIn today’s weather, brought to you by the Fall In Love Festival Bridal Show, this morning’s rain showers should move out after 10 a.m.. giving way to a high of 52 degrees (overnight low of 27). Starting Tuesday, after some morning fog, we’ll be looking at clear skies and temperatures climbing into the 60s through the weekend. It also appears we’ll be dealing with mostly calm winds after today.

The Fall In Love Festival Bridal Show is Feb. 21 from noon to 4 p.m. at Walley’s Resort with with vendors and catering cuisine samples. For more information, e-mail events@fallinlovefestival.com or obtain complimentary tickets at this link.

We’ll get back to the stories we were working on before the storm hit on Friday – needless to say, we have quite a bit of catchup to do this morning. Keep an eye out for updates.

That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
