It's been in the low 20s with winds gusting over 70mph up top. Pretty damn cold for June.

Showery graupel in town at 40 degrees. Rime ice on the summit. We may have to have a fire tonight!

Looks like it's snowing pretty good at Canyon Lodge.

Very winter-like radar showing more snow heading for Mammoth as the cold low drops south. I'm glad that I'm not backpacking in the high Sierra this weekend, it's COLD!

Been snowing pretty good at our elevation. There's about 1/2" on our front porch!

Looking down our driveway toward the street...really!

So glad I didn't plant my annuals or perennials yet!

Interesting weather this time of year. I notice there is a freeze warning up for the north east corner of California (lows 28-32) and at the same time an excessive heat warning up for the south east corner of California (highs 110 - 116 )


Thanks for the pics SL.

You can see the fresh snow on the trees in this shot from Sentinel Dome in Yosemite. Glacier Point Rd was closed due to the snow.

Impressively cold storm for June.

Great shot, sure doesn't look like June.

It looks like the snow pack melt will really kick into gear this coming weekend. High temps for Mammoth Lakes Sat. and Sun. are predicted to be in the 80's. Sigh!

I skied last June 13th. It was a white ribbon down broadway. Incredible depth and coverage. Planning a trip for the 4th. Hope the heat wave doesn't melt it all away.

A memory popped up on my FB page from 6/12/16...it was snowing that day, too.

The clouds are clearing off the top of the mountains now. I just happened to have looked at the summit cam at 8:45 this evening and was in awe of the view.

We are so blessed to be surrounded by such beauty.
