Wow, Glacier Point Road looks dry. That's the sunny corner, is the rest of it that bad? I was thinking of heading up there next weekend, maybe I needn't bother. Oh well, looks like we'll get an early summer.

The rumor going around mammoth is that the government sequester cut the road opening /plowing budget so that it will open in June regardless of snow conditions

Anyone else recall last winter's dry spell?

Good reportage, KNOM, 99.0 % sure on your radio dial.

What about early May? Maggie?

Roads should be open early, the only thing that got sequestered was snow.

It looks like it did last December/January, worse, maybe.

Does anyone have a link to current high res satellite images of the Yosemite? You should be able to see if the road is clear or knott.
