I think Doug has this weather gauge written on a piece of paper in the store:
If it is raining, then it is wet.
Something to that effect when my wife and I were there July 25.
Don't know when you are going, but there are a lot of cumulonimbus clouds to the east from my vantage point here at 1500 feet in Coarsegold.
Judging from the pictures from the webcams, Steve C, looks like they are back!
Now, for the sake of all the Whitney hikers, I wish those clouds would move a little further to the west, so I can fill up my cisterns and have nothing but sunny cool skies for the MWT! I request no lightning strikes since everything is bone-dry.
Have fun and enjoy the Gr8 Yd Opn.
