Trapped At Home By Wyoming Spring Snow
Casper, Wyoming, Tuesday morning, 1:30am.
I'm an early riser because I have to get to the studios and put together a four-hour radio show that runs from 6 am to 10 am.
But this morning I'm pretty sure I'm not going to make it in.
Maybe I should have just slept at the radio studios.
This first picture, above, is of a car park at my neighbor's house.
Snow has been flowing over the roof and piling up on this vehicle all night.
Notice the car parked just behind it, in the second picture, does not have much snow.
It all depends on where it drifts.
At this point, I'm not sure of the depth of the white stuff, but I know it's at least knee-high in most places, and I'm a tall guy.
The road out in front of my house is under several feet of snow.
The city did not even bother to try and plow it overnight.
There was just no keeping up with the volume coming down.
And we are not done yet.
The snow continues through Tuesday and, perhaps, partly into Wednesday.
In our part of the state it's been falling slow and steady, and it just won't stop.
Phase two of this storm will be when the storm moves out and warmer air moves in.
That brings winds.
This snow is light, so it's going to blow all over, from a different direction, and cover anything that might have been plowed or dug out.
Wyoming might be closed for a couple of days.
