    Default about 1-2" of snow on the ground.

    I just looked and there is only about 1-2" of snow on the ground. And blue skies.

    Default Will it thaw?

    The weather forecast also looks settled for the week ahead with daytime temperatures peaking at the 50F mark, it could just be enough to deal with any ice and get the Pass open again.

    Default Melting, melting, melting

    Almost all of the snow has melted from the High Sierra Cam foreground this morning.

    Well, need a new dart!

    By the "rules" the soonest I can ping a new date would be 15 days from now.

    So, for my second dart, I will claim December 8th at 8 am.

    Default Wow! They called it

    Yosemite NP have declared Tioga pass closed for the season! With the conditions and forecast over the next few days I find that surprising although it's probably the easy choice with no extra man power required to monitor and manage the situation.

    We will wait for official closing date as always.

    Dave.

    Yeah, that is surprising. OK. I wonder if we we'll have a new dcTPP?
