    Beginning now and running thru Monday night if traveling in SE WY expect high to very high winds.
    Expect extended road closures. 80 has already been closed some because of the blowing snow.


    Prepare accordingly

    Sitting here in Cheyenne waiting to see if the customer will pay for 247 out of route miles for me to jump down to 70 and head west and back up to SLC. If not, I guess I'll sit. Talked to a DOT guy at the TA in Burns, he doesn't think 80 will open until tomorrow afternoon after the snow and rain come through later today.

    Super. My route goes down 80 to Rock Springs and back to Northern CO. Usually done by Tuesday afternoon. :/
