BTW can't say, having basically grown up near Pasadena way back when rain was something that always put a damper on things. I never got any thing done when it rained until I moved to Oregon. Those big loop hikes up, out and back down into the ditch are great on rainy days. That said a couple or three days of that is about my limit, not to mention the bar.

My first time in the Valley in the early 70's, was after we backpacked in from Mammoth. Then we found a perfect place to pitch our tent with no fees and no one next to us, right in the middle of the Ahwahnee Meadow! We had consumed all our food but I still happened to have a dirty mess kit in my backpack from our hike and a bear thought he found the mother load and took off with the whole kit and caboodle! Next thing you know a Park Ranger is going to give us a ticket for illegal camping, but he felt sorry for me because the bear had my pack and told us to pack up and go! I found my pack with a few claw marks but still usable!

Charlie, after living in the Bavarian Alps for close to five years, I understand what bad weather and good pub cultures sow in a person. The one thing I never left home without when I lived in Garmisch was my umbrella. It always gives a person a dry place to spark a bowl;). The Mountain Room bar is a poor substitute for a German Gasthaus.

can't say, you deserve a bump for surviving the damp of the '83 Feb-March deluges, especially in the ditch!

I recommend the Muir sketch Yosemite Valley in Flood in comparison.

I don't recall ever hearing the term "El Nino" prior to this 'weather event' of 1983. TV jumped on the floods here in California and El Nino became a trademark, an icon. I do recall a lot of things about that spring, but so do we all.
