I was driving in this though lower down and my own little videoclip (18 seconds) shows what it was like for a driver expecting May weather :-)

http://bit.ly/spring-snow (this goes to youtube and is on Highway 41)

At 5:34 when I took the videoclip, I was at this point and it was the first time I was actually aware it was snowing.

I went a bit further up, where you turn off to go up to Glacier Point. And this is what the snow looked there:

It was a bit disorienting :-) But it was also gorgeous to me. I turned around there, as my car was not exactly equipped for this.
