Silver - "I am just happy to see water in our lakes" - me, too. No argument here. After a few lean years, I have a new appreciation of our watersheds.

But I guess I could handle tossing some Al Gore into the discussion if it gets us to the top of the page for a few more pictures & reports.

PLEASE!!!!! No Al Gore discussion here.

I intend this thread to be an information source about current conditions that players can check in on for the best info available.

It's windy as all hell in Lone Pine, raining off and on with some pretty macho clouds rolling through the mountains... Film festival goers are falling and breaking their hips left and right

Yeah, but when Al Gore speaks, people listen. Otherwise you become page two news real fast.

Anyway just another noob troll as to what's going on up there, best guess as to when the roads will re-open, pretty pictures, boring stuff.

WX in Long Beach yesterday, unreal, was like a hurricane here, windy and just dumped rain non-stop all day.

Lone Pine looks like it will be perfect for the weekend and a little A Hills cragging. Looks like the Stoney Point crowd will be rolling in en masse.

Some dude from JPL predicted a La Nina for last winter, and LA got about 20" of rain for the season(above normal). they interviewed him again tonight, and he said the same thing about the coming winter. we shall see.
I also have a degree in geography. I remember one of my profs saying that you can't predict weather accurately for more than three days.

We had 3" of snow fall late yesterday afternoon, and this morning's low was 19F.

Absolutely stunning here this morning, with bluebird skies. Sun will make short work of the snow in a few hours.

Reported at yosemitenews.info:

SR89, SR4, and SR108 have all opened again without controls. There is apparently a rock slide east of Tioga Pass that may keep that road closed a few days.

Update:

Just called the park and they report Tioga Road as open. Caltrans is still claiming 120 to be closed on the east side.

We now return you to your standard programming.
