Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
I hate to regurgitate weather reports for Yosemite, but this one you need to hear. All the fine summer heat we have been having is heading outta here and a nor’easter is coming in. There is a Winter Storm Watch for the Sierra Nevada from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon. Several inches of snow and strong gusty winds are expected on Monday afternoon. A stronger storm is expected Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. Eight to sixteen inches of snow is expected from 4000 through 5000 feet. One to three feet of snow is possible above 7000 feet. Winds of twenty to thirty mph are expected with some gusts reaching in excess of sixty mph. Cold and unsettled weather is expected for the rest of the week. Chains!!!!
With that cheery news (better waterfalls soon),I want to invite yall to my Facebook page. After weeks “no comprende” I was able to get my brand name on the Facebook page.
