A temperature drop of 80 degrees in less than 48 hours: That’s what most of Wyoming experienced early this week. It was a balmy 60 degrees late Sunday night, and a klondike-like 16 degrees below zero Tuesday morning. I can’t help but wonder how the local flora and fauna survive these extremes. The range plants that have a fall green up were literally flash-frozen. Perfectly green plants could be seen encased in ice beneath the snow like you might freeze herbs in an ice cube tray for later use.
It looked like this last week.
And like this today…..
