Historic Year In Wyoming

I moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming eleven months ago, and we have had historic weather.

I filmed these snow videos on June 8-10 west of Cheyenne.

Then we had the most persistently warm (and shortest) summer on record in Cheyenne, with 33 days above 90F, breaking the previous record of 32. Average is ten days above 90F.

The maximum temperature of 32F (0C) on September 8, 2020 was the coldest afternoon on record that early in autumn.

I took this picture on September 9, west of Cheyenne.

Cheyenne broke the record for a one day drop in maximum temperature when temperatures dropped from 86F to 32F between September 7 and September 8.

The maximum temperature of 11F on October 25, 2020 was the coldest on record that early in the autumn, and tied the record for October cold set on October 30, 1991.

The maximum temperature of -7F recorded on Valentines Day 2021 was the coldest maximum temperature on record that late in winter.

And now we are facing an historic blizzard, with 30 inches of snow on the ground and high winds.

I was speaking with a neighbor yesterday who lived through the 1949 blizzard.  She told me we don’t get winters like that any more, but she may end up changing her mind.
