GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — In the works since 2012, the Main Street Basque-themed mural project will most likely be completed today as it is hung outside the Mason Lodge. You can read more about it here.

March will come in in typical Nevada lion-y lamb circumstances with mostly skies, a high of 66 degrees and a southwest wind increasing from around 5 mph in the morning to 15-25 mph this afternoon with gusts up to 35 mph.

The chance of rain later this week has been pushed to Friday, hanging around through Saturday and Sunday and transitioning to rain and snow for next Monday and Tuesday. But that’s an extended look, so it could all go away at any moment.

We had a question yesterday about why Channel 8 KOLO TV went out Sunday night just as the Oscars were starting. A power outage struck right at 5:30, affecting the KOLO station and its over-the-air antennae and satellite signals. Cable customers were apparently unaffected. NV Energy reported the outage was due to a catastrophic failure of a circuit breaker in South Reno, affecting 10,000 customers. KOLO’s backup generator also failed. Power was restored two hours later.

The Douglas County Public Library Minden branch will host toddler storytime at 10:30 a.m. and preschool storytime at 11:15. The branch is located at 1625 Library Lane in Minden. Information, 775-782-9841.

The Gardnerville Town Board meets at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon at the Gardnerville Town Hall, 1407 Highway 395 in Gardnerville. You can view their agenda here.

The Genoa Town Twirlers Square Dancing Club will host its new dancers class today at the Genoa Town Hall from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. First time dancing is free, then $6 per person per class. Information, John Hall, 775-267-3498 or Jenny Tanner, 775-267-2198.
The Carson Valley Trails Association hosts its annual meeting and social tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Douglas County Community and Senior Center, 1329 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville. The event is free and open to the public. Also planned is a presentation about current and future CVTA trails projects. 
That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
Correction: The Town of Genoa monthly meeting was incorrectly listed on Tuesday’s schedule (March 1). It had been moved to Wednesday (March 2).
