8 Things About Living In Wyoming That Never Seem To Change
Life in Wyoming is certainly something special! When you live in a state that’s so quiet, remote, and sparsely populated, life moves a little slower, and things don’t change as rapidly as they do on the crowded coasts. Read a few of these unchanging Wyoming truths below and see if you relate to any of them.
1. The Wind will always find a way to surprise you.
Just when you think you're used to it, you'll get whacked by a closing car door or have something important fly out of your hands and away from you as you humbly try to chase it down.
2. Going into town still takes some planning.
Most Wyomingites live outside of their nearest downtown area, and heading in for shopping or a meal takes a good chunk out of your day.
3. The Snow.
The snow here never changes - it just relocates for a bit. Every winter (okay, and for most of the fall, and at least half of the spring) it comes back with a vengeance and we all have to find our favorite gloves again.
4. The Parks are terrible for most of the summer.
The real pro tip is to visit in mid to late September. You might deal with some snow, but at least the tourists will all be back in school.
5. Silence is therapeutic.
6. The "long way" is ALWAYS worth it.
Sometimes, a scenic detour is an hour or more out of the way, but it's always worth it to see something stunning (and not just sagebrush flats).
7. We hold our virtues and our values close to our hearts.
You'll find some passionate discussions if you bring up beliefs or politics in a group of Wyomingites.
8. Wyoming's best-kept secrets are safe with us.
