Winter in Wyoming – in June!

It’s the 9th of June, and still snowing heavily. (More than half a foot [more than 15cm] in some areas.)

Here’s a direct quote from the National Weather Service:

“June 9th 2020 Morning Update: No, this isn’t an old graphic from February nor is it December 2020 yet. It really is June. Heavy snow continues above 7000 feet early this morning with snow packed roads observed on the Interstate 80 Summit. Numerous snowfall reports of over 6 inches of snow across the southern Laramie Range and even across portions of the Laramie Valley. Expect hazardous travel to continue over the next several hours with snow tapering off shortly after sunrise.”
