Took me a second to figure out that the most prevelent weather condition is night :). Looks pretty much the same as out my window. (posted @ 1:05 am EST)

Looks like there's a little more snow than when I was there a couple weeks ago. There was quite a bit then too, though. The roads and trails were very icy as well! Yep, I'll bet the waterfalls look great in the Spring.

Well just hopefully the roads and trails to and around Glacier Point will be open by June 10th ... :confused:

I'm no expert on the weather conditions for Yosemite (I'd never been to place until Jan '05) but from what I can gather, this winter has had pretty low snowfall on the Valley floor compared to previous years (so far). although there always seems to be snow coverage at the higher altitudes. how much this will affect the waterfalls I don't as the snow can melt pretty quickly. When I was there in Jan this year, we arrived just after a big rain storm, and the waterfalls where enormous, but 2 days later they where back to normal.

Thanks for that input Pete _ my main objective other than the Valley is hiking the trails from Glacier Point so I've been trying to figure out if the above snow pack is normal for this time of year. Hopefully by mid June they'll have the higher elevations open.
You could easily see the tree and bushes in that live camera view two weeks ago.
