Very hazy today in Yosemite!
Save

We are currently here and wanted to let you all know it’s very hazy right now,10am.

Also,because of the construction (on weekdays only?)count on delays-sometimes VERY long depending on traffic.The guy next to us at Scenic Wonders said it was horrible Tuesday so he decided to hit Glacier Point today instead.

I can smell smoke guessing it’s from Sequoia National Park? Trying to read the news regarding but my wifi keeping dropping! Here’s hoping air quality improves soon!

.

In addition to the road work or road delays, there are quite a few power outages. Those are mostly planned.

Thank you PacificNW,very helpful.

That’s interesting about the “planned” power outages.We lost power yesterday (until 11:35pm) at our condo in Yosemite West.If it was caused by that it would have been great if they gave us a heads up.

It's possible that the property owners get a text from PG&E. Certainly Scenic Wonders management should be receiving those texts, but the information is not always available.

Bumping this up. While hazy earlier this week air quality remained in the moderate levels.

It's Friday afternoon in the valley and it's now in the unhealthy level and half dome isn't really visible.
