The weather is gorgeous in Fort Collins, so we head north in high spirits to try a little skiing at Snowy Range. It is not to be. Many times I’ve seen the weather go to pot right at the Wyoming border. Today the border brings ground blizzards. In the bright sun it doesn’t seem too bad, and we make it to Laramie. The forecast is for more wind tonight though, and the ground blizzards even now would be a show stopper at night. So we turn around. They’re already a bit worse. We pass a multi-car accident. Things clear up again right at the border, but we see that the highway patrol is closing the road. That’s good, so we don’t feel like total pantywaists.
