From the National Park Service Yosemite web site (www.nps.gov/yose):

The Tioga Road (Highway 120 through the park) will open at noon on Friday, May 11.

I wonder how the Tuolumne is doing. Perhaps I hike to this spot again and have good batteries in my light meter too!

I won't be there for the opening, but I'll probably be up there on Saturday.

NPS web site says Tioga Rd. is officially open.

And there was much rejoicing...

It was open at least 3 hours before they said it would be. But that's no surprise to me.

Went for a small hike today:

A couple years ago the Half Dome cables went up two days before the announced date. Tricky NPS...

I wasn't even planning to go past the bridge. But since I was early to me the friend that was hiking down from Glacier Point I decided to go up a bit more. When I got to where the mist was starting I mentioned to some people there that I was turning around because my camera and cell phone would get wet (nice excuse at least). They gave me a trash bag and the electronics go to stay dry.

No, I didn't have a rain coat. Fortunately I don't disolve in water so all was fine.
