    So is it safe to say that the drought and water rationing are over and done?

    My crystal ball tells me that Yos suppose to get snow this weekend and ending on Mon. It would be good to go afterwards....probably in a kayak.

    Yes and no. But that is getting political so let's not go there.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    From NOAA:

    Rain. The rain could be heavy at times. High near 38. Windy, with a south southwest wind 20 to 25 mph increasing to 30 to 35 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 55 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New precipitation amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible.

    I'm pouring myself another cup of coffee and mulling over today's "plan B"
    No snow this past weekend except in the much higher elevations. Much rain yesterday, but still a fine time to shoot if you are selective. No flooding, but the clouds swirling around El Cap were memorable. No sun for Horsetail. Maybe next Feb

    Right now, 41 is closed above Fish Camp due to yesterday's storm damage. It is expected to reopen March 10.

    Re: Yosemite to Flood the Weekend

    Just read this on our Tuolumne County local news...

    "The Big Oak Flat Road in Yosemite National Park, which is the extension of Highway 120, is closed due to storm damage. The closure runs from Foresta to Crane Flat. Earlier this week the stretch Big Oak Flat Road was closed during the overnight hours from 6pm until 6am, but conditions have worsened, prompting a 24 hour closure"

    The only access to Yosemite Valley at this time is Hwy 140.

    The Tuolumne Meadows Winter update reports 55 inches of new snow and a snow depth of 137 inches. Check it out it has 2 photos taken from the summit of Mount Danna (13,055') last week: https://www.nps.gov/yose/blogs/updat...ry-22-2017.htm

    For reference here's an image taken of me at the same spot during the summer months:



    With all the heavy rains and floods, this might be a good year for gold panning.
