More Right Than I Thought?

During the past week or so I have posted a few times about the prospective opening of Tioga Pass Road through Tuolumne Meadows between the Central Valley and Owens Valley. First I predicted that the road might open this past Thursday – based on historic opening dates and information could read about current road-clearing progress. Then when the road did not open this past week, I posted a mea culpa regarding my incorrect guess. (To be fair, I did not state with certainty that it would open on Thursday – I carefully hedge a lot… ;-)

Today I saw the following from Yosemite Blog, suggesting that my earlier prediction may not have been that far off the mark but for a bit of last minute weather in the high country.

Tioga Pass Still Closed.

I just checked and due to recent storm activity Tioga Pass is still closed though it was slated to open yesterday or today if conditions should allow.

It’s a beautiful day today so hopefully it’ll melt away some of the snow and ice so they can get the pass open. Stay tuned. I’ll let you know if anything should change.

Stay tuned…
