From the Yosemite facebook site this afternoon:

The Tioga Road (continuation of Highway 120 through the park) reopens at 5 pm today! The road had been closed due to snow and rockfall. Drive carefully: you may encounter some icy sections

Then again:

UPDATED: The Tioga Road will not reopen until noon on Thursday, October 20. The delay is due to a new rockfall.

Isn't that something motorists should always do?

One of the best parts of the Sierra is all the purty rocks -- but Caltrans's legal dept. has to add its "don't say we didn't warn ya" after those SUV-sized beauties snuck onto the road ...
