According to the Reno NWS, 179 MPH gusts on top of Mammoth...wonder how many downed trees Yosemite will see, the wind direction (NNE) is similar to the big wind event a few years ago.

I just got back from Yosemite and it was really windy and at one point on the 31st the 140, 41 and Glacier Pt Rd was closed due to downed trees. Badger Pass was closed on the 31st and there was a tree that came down on Red Fox run.
