Temperatures will return into the 70s Friday and continue through the weekend. Our next shot at precipitation will be next Tuesday at the earliest, and even that for now is just a slight chance of rain showers.

Sierra Chef’s next cooking class will be March 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Italian Hearts Pasta Sauces Kitchen, 1425 Industrial Way in Gardnerville. Chef Diane Weidinger of Heart Rock Herb & Spice is the guest instructor, covering spice blending for dishes such as Zucchini Feta Pancakes, Mini Beef Sliders, Honey Glazed Carrots and more. Ability level is for beginner adults (over 21) for the hands-on instructional session. Class size limit is 12 and cost is $75 per per person. To sign up for the class, visit this link.

We got to about half of our list of 20 stories on Wednesday and added five or six more to our list, making for a busy day out in front of us. It may be Friday or Saturday before we’re able to clear the list, but the good news for you is that there will be plenty of updates in between.

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