Hello, Wyoming!

Our drive started out great yesterday. By late morning, we were on the road, which is what we had hoped for. The roads were all dry with little traffic. Everything went smoothly until about 30 miles or so outside of Gillette, where we ran into blowing snow and icy roads. It took us almost an hour to finish up that last bit of the trip. We were really happy to get off the road for the night!

This morning it was still snowing. Schools were all delayed, there was black ice in all directions, and no travel to the south. Sooooo, we are going to hang out in Gillette for the day! We are not in a big hurry, and do not mind staying put, especially if the alternative is ice and snow!

The speed sign on the freeway made me laugh. I do not think Waldo could go 80mph even if he wanted to! Pretty sure there was no chance of us speeding through that area. πŸ™‚ Ah, but those dry roads sure were nice!

  1. Driving the Interstate thru that area in April, I was surprised by the signs that waited off the road saying Freeway Closed Due to Snow (or something like that). In other words, they shut down the whole shebang, and you just have to stay in the last town you got to. Not a lot of alternatives!

  2. So glad you are staying put for the day! You have plenty of time to get there and not be late. Enjoy your “rest” day and hopefully the roads are dry (or darn close to it!) and clear the rest of your trip. Love you guys!!! 😘

  3. best to be safe…dont want Waldo sliding all over the ice….TAKE CARE >>STAY SAFE
