Spring in White Pine County and across the State of Nevada brings a hope that those long winter months are behind us. It’s a beautiful time of year to get outdoors and enjoy what our community has to offer. As you take that time to venture out, remember that our weather can change in a minute and that road conditions are unpredictable. The snow is melting and our frequent rain storms that were having leave traveling questionable on our Forest Service, BLM and County Roads. Just this last weekend we received a report from a concerned citizen that a road in the Duck Creek area was being damaged by over flowing water. The water was pouring over the culvert causing damage to the roadway. The roadways are muddy and slippery and most of them are still covered in snow and unpassable. Before you head out you can always check with the Forest Service and BLM to check on current road conditions. If you do go, go prepared. Take a shovel, extra food and water and warm clothing. Make sure you tell a trusted person where you’re going and when you will return, and make sure your cell phone is charged so you can call if you need that assistance. Enjoy the great spring weather, but just make sure your safe while doing so.
