Last week when I was in Yosemite, waiting to see if I could get a campsite for the night, I chatted with a couple from Nevada. When they entered at Tioga Pass the ranger told them that a storm was coming in and that it was possible that the road could be closed. Assuming the roads were kept open all year, she said "Oh, we'll just stay a couple of extra days". The ranger just laughed.

They were a little anxious to find out that "closed" could mean closed for the winter. smiling smiley Of course, as it turned out, they had nothing to worry about.

Yes, when I read the first message, I was not happy, as I'm heading there in a few days and was hoping to use the Glacier point road for Sentinel Dome etc. and maybe the Pano trail.

Then I read the second message and all was well. At least assuming nothing major happens in the next week.

The weather should be fair and clear into the middle of next week after the weekend. I'm going to be going into the valley from Carson City on Tuesday and I'm expecting clear roads and sky.
