The park service web site reports that they started plowing at the May Lake junction yesterday and that plowing will begin tomorrow (May 15) from Tioga Pass. I assume this means the road is clear to Tioga Pass from the east side and they will begin to plow from Tioga Pass west until the two plowing efforts meet somewhere in between for a golden spike ceremony (hopefully on June 7, my predicted date). Making really good progress.
