What's it mean when WYOROAD says the roadway is 'slick'? You ain't in for a good day of driving.
|Slick as in no visible roadway for two states over|
|Slick in spots with the brown spots being unslick but very muddy.|
What's it mean when someone says they are 'high-centered?' Now this is a very regional term for Stuck, like as in you ain't gonna move without either a shovel or a pull.
When it the last snow in Wyoming? Usually late April or Early May. In 2010 - it was May 6th.

Do you ever just slide off the road in 'slick' conditions? Frequently. In fact there was joke that was emailed around 60 miles North of Nowhere folk where in other places people scream before they slide off the road. Sixty Miles North of Nowhere, we usually hand our drink to the passenger, grab another gear on the four wheel drive pickup and yell, Watch THIS!
When do you put on 'chains?' When you are High Centered usually. Nobody 60 Miles North of Nowhere in their right mind would put on tire chains until they are High Centered. It's a cold, wet, muddy, nasty job at it's best. And that if the sun is shining and it's not snowing hard.
So do you have other seasons in Wyoming? Sure, we have spring, summer and fall all packed into about 120 days. The other 245 days of the year vary between SLICK and SLICK IN SPOTS.
Upcoming in 2012 --- Spring.
Warning: Don't blink or you might miss it!
