Yellowstone CLOSED, All Gates - Flooding, Mudslides

The park has been temporarily closed at all gates due to flooding and rock slides. No inbound visitor traffic will be allowed into the park until conditions stabilize and the park can assess damage to roads and bridges and other facilities. This includes visitors with lodging and camping reservations.

What’s a flood? Does that have something to do with rain?

We haven’t had measurable precip since New Year’s Day, 4” of snow if I recall correctly. (I may have missed another storm that I didn’t record in my weather journal. If so, it was equivalently small.) Probably didn’t have a foot of snow all winter. Last spring we had a cloudburstj that trenched our driveway. Even the tumbleweed is dying this year.

Feeling SO BAD for all those in NM ! Fire Service should have NEVER done prescribed burns at beginning of fire season. Do controlled burns ONLY after rain in the area.

Anyone know how the Galisteo, NM area has fared ? Friends in the area who are not home right now --

I was in Yellowstone for two weeks in January, and snow levels were quite low.Must be from recent rains?

In case anybody here is impacted by this: if you are looking for an alternate park in the area, consider Craters Of The Moon outside Arco, ID.

Galisteo is fine. No fires near it. Just wind, dust and smoke but I think it’s mostly avoided smoke.

Thanks for sharing that video vandiesel. It's amazing what water can do. I don't think that front end loader (about 0:18 into the video) is going anywhere anytime soon.
