Hunker down, it’s a winter storm!

They were forecasting a bit of snow Sunday night into Monday and it appears the forecasters were a bit conservative. Here’s what is looks like Monday morning.

The Nevada Winter Road Conditions website at Safe Travel (also 511 or 877 687 6237) has chain or snow tire conditions on I80 nearly all the way across Nevada, on US 50 out past Austin, from Gerlach to Hawthorn and even on the US 70 Feather River route as well as all the usual routes in the Reno and Carson City area.

So, if you are thinking of travel in Northern Nevada this week, forget it. Find someplace you can hunker down and wait for the storm to break and the road crews to clean up the mess and the weather to abate a bit. Do make sure to find someplace to hunker down where you can keep warm as this storm appears to be bringing January and February temperatures with it.

In weather like this, road travel is hazardous and even just keeping warm and safe can be an issue. Take care.
