    May 28th at 9am!
    Every year when I think that our winter won't end - we got some snow today - I remember how much longer winter sticks around in other areas.

    Default They were right to be concerned.

    It turned out the combination of rain and snowmelt caused Yosemite Valley to close to park visitors for a while through the weekend but has since re-opened.

    From Yosemite webpage.
    Date: April 7, 2018


    Yosemite Valley anticipates opening Sunday, April 8 at noon pending assessments
    Yosemite National Park experienced significant impacts from a strong storm that came in from the Pacific. Impacts included 2 to 4 feet of water on roads within Yosemite Valley, impacts to the electrical system, and impacts to water systems. As water levels recede, the park will assess conditions throughout this evening and into tomorrow morning. If conditions permit, all roads leading into Yosemite Valley and all roads in Yosemite Valley will open tomorrow,Sunday April 8, at noon.
    For tonight, access to Yosemite Valley remains closed along the Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120) at the Foresta Road Junction, along with the Wawona Road (Highway 41) at Chinquapin, and along Highway 140 at the Park boundary in El Portal.
    Visitor services and campgrounds remain open in Wawona, Hodgdon Meadow, Crane Flat, and El Portal. The Big Trees Lodge, the El Portal Market, and the El Portal gas station remain open. Roads and park facilities may close at any time for visitor and employee safety.

    Default Progress !

    They started to mobilize the plow's on April 5th and since then there has been no updates so I was surprised to read that the plows are now near to the May Lake junction. I would estimate that's about 2.5 to 3 miles from Tenaya lake, that's some progress ! They are said to be plowing through 2 to 3 feet of snow and there will be lots of clearing to do once they have completed the full length of the road followed by widening and road repairs. How long this take will depend on what they find and whether or not the weather help's out.

    Dave.

    I am going to predict May 15th at 2pm.
