    As the title states,Wyoming Highway Patrol has shutdown I-80 in both directions since yesterday due to the winter storm. I’m currently stuck in Cheyenne waiting for this storm to pass so I can continue on to California.

    I stopped running I-80, October 1st. Just isn’t worth the risk.

    I-80 isn’t so much the issue,it’s the drivers that haven’t had the proper winter weather driving skills that are the problem.

    Right now it’s a sleet/drizzle mix and there’s maybe a couple inches of snow on the ground but 80 is still closed.

    Doesn’t look enjoyable. Classy hood ornament. Love it.

    It’s Wyoming in the winter, what did you expect? When running West into California this time of year I run the Southern route, Us54 to I40.
