Default Winter Commuting

I'm sure I already know the answer to this, but I'll ask it anyway.
How bad would the commute be from around the Cody area to Greybull in the winter? 2 hours 3 hours impassible at times?

I'm taking a job transfer to Greybull, but at this time the only horse property rentals (all 1 of them on Craigslist) that my wife can find are in Cody. The job starts July 19th, so I imagine a commute to Greybull from Cody would not be so bad, I'm just concerned with what I do when old man winter hits.

We're going to make a trip out there from July 5th (my b-day ) through the 8th to see if we can find more available rentals. Any suggestions on where to look would be much appreciated.

Oh BTW we have 3 horses and 2 minis.

I am not sure about the commute time, but if you haven't noticed, Craigslist is not utilized in Wyoming like it is in other areas of the country. I would suggest getting your hands on a local paper, whether online or call & have one sent to you. You will likely have better luck in finding something to rent.

I agree with CharlotteG, Craigslist is not a good source of reference for you and what you are shopping for in our area. Greybull's got a lot of farmland around it, as well as Basin. I would think there's horse pasture rentals around there. Probably put an ad in the local paper and see what calls you get. The commute from Cody to Greybull would take about 45 min. to an hour I guess. It's doable most of the year, the road is pretty nice between the towns and our highway dept. does a great job clearing the snow...we don't get a lot of snow, which may surprise you. Usually when the roads close it's due to blowing snow and I can't remember that road ever closing?? I think you'll be able to find a place for your horses in Greybull or Basin. Good luck and enjoy your visit!

Thank you very much everyone for the replies. It is official now that my boss approved my transfer for my job in Greybull, so we will definitely be checking out the area thoroughly next week.....or at least as thoroughly as we can with only a few short days.

Good to know about CL. We'll check out the local papers and talk to some Realtors to try to find something. Only have a couple of weeks, and a lot of work to do.
