A record 11 inches of snow fell in Cheyenne on Thursday.

The last time Cheyenne experienced such a significant snow event this late in spring was about 67 years ago, when Harry Truman was president, the Weather Channel said.

  1. The UK didn’t get any Snow of any amount for yet another Winter the Last major Snow of any note was back in 2010. What has happened to our Winters?

  2. Wow! don’t see much of this in the msm.

    This morning in Albuquerque the weather report said it was 42 deg. But the ice on top of pickup doesn’t lie.
