you might be close... this from the NPS website tonight:
"The Tioga Road (Highway 120 through the park) and Glacier Point Road are closed. They usually reopen in late May or June, but there is no estimated opening date available."
I think there would be an estimated date if it were to open this week. After they plow they fart around paving patches of road and doing various maintenance and repairs. I drove over Sonora Pass the weekend it opened last year, and it was pretty clear that they didn't open it as soon as the snow cleared (there was only snow on the roadside maybe 5 miles, never more than 2 feet deep, and several stretches of new asphalt).
