In regards to the Tioga Road re-opening...it will, but probably not by Friday. :(

Saturday morning is a possibility.

Glad we were up Bishop Creek Canyon last weekend to see the aspens - this probably is the end of those (at 9000 ft. anyway). Was thinking the color was earlier than last year too. This snow as well!

Just clearing up now down here in L.A. Maybe we'll have an early season Santa Ana this weekend, then it'll feel like Fall.

Is "WX conditions" some sort of cross-country skier jargon for "what wax should I use?". If so, I suggest purple klister.

try blue/green mixed in a pot over a Svea. Applied with a brush. Carry a can of purple and a tube of silver just in case.

It wouldn't be beyond Mammoth Mountain to take advantage of a storm like this, to get press for the earliest ski area opening.

Probably a foot of snow at the most on top of Mt. Rose hwy this morning.

So question for you all out there. As I understand it a glacier is a mass of snow and ice that starts when a large amount of snow and ice does not melt from the previous winter. This is the first year I can remember that the snow did not melt completly off of Mt. Rose. I know as well many other areas in the Sierra it did not melt as well.

So are we starting a new Ice Age here. Many science people say the sun has the least amount of sun spots in the last few years sice the mid 1800's. They say the last time this happend a small ice age happend. Anyone think the huge earth quakes over the last few years have change our axis or created a small wobble that has resulted in what I consider two of the biggest winters I have seen in this area. It snowed this week 4 months after our last snow. 8 months of winter is not something I find appealing.
