Major snowstorm hits Wyoming, creating traffic jams and bringing wildfire relief


The first big snowstorm of the season led to major travel issues in Wyoming this week, but also helped with the wildfire fight in parts of neighboring Montana.

The storm dropped as much as 50.8 cm (20 inches) at Soldier Park, 48.2 cm (19 inches) at Hansen Sawmill, 45.7 cm (18 inches) at Cloud Peak and 44.2 cm (17.4 inches) in Casper by October 13.

The highest total at any community at lower elevations was 45.7 cm (18 inches) in SSW of Buffalo.
