Wyoming Wind Sock
Not sure who took this picture, but I believe it is an accurate account of the seemingly constant wind that blows in my fair state. In the winter, the wind seems to encourage the snow to blow across the roads, causing what we call "Ground Blizzards". In the summer, we whisper when we are planning a barbeque or a camping trip. If we don't, the wind hears and ruins our plans.
While the Wyoming Winds can be a burden, they also serve a very useful purpose. Wyoming is one of the lowest populated states, with just over 400,000 people. The beauty, grandeur and fun may bring people to Wyoming to visit, but the Wyoming Wind encourages them to leave.
We like it that way.
