Hang on to your hats and steering wheels today, if going over Tioga Pass. I was up in Tuolumne yesterday and it was WINDY! Gusty, with occassional blowing snow across the highway (from current snowpack) and very crazy and dusty gusts in the Blue Slide area. Can't imagine what it will be like today.
