The time lapse on the High Sierra webcam at Sentinel Dome has shown some significant snowfall over the last two days (Saturday and Sunday). If Monday's snowfall is anything like they are predicting, we might not be able to see much of anything from that webcam when the storm clears.

You're right, the snow is piled high in front of the camera, only Clouds Rest and Echo Peaks are visible (left side of the camera is obscured by condensation and an icicle). But the webcam views of Yosemite Falls and HD from Ahwahnee Meadow are stunning right now.
