I agree. I've lived in a lot of states and learned a long time ago that if a person could put up with the snow, they'd have it made.

People say there's nothing to do in the winter. I so disagree. You can still go hiking, just have different clothes and boots. You can go skiing, sledding, snow boarding, hunting, fishing, etc. It's all a mindset for me.

You got 4 really distinct seasons. Winter being the longest one. Spring and fall fall into second place for length. Summer, well, last year we had summer on the 7th of July from 1 til 3.

But I do find that Wyoming is an easy place to retire.

I've noticed the distinct seasons much more this year than any before. The summer was really nice and quite long. It didn't get TOO hot and was very comfortable. Spring was nice, too. This fall has been the most beautiful I can remember in a very long time. We just had our first little cold snap & bit of snow a couple of nights ago. Now it's back to being nice today. I still have flowers blooming in my yard, which is awesome! Looks like old man Winter will come a bit later this year (which is okay with me).....but who know how long he'll stick around????? Have to wait & see!

I like that word..........reasonable; seems true and complimentary. That's why my general infatuation with the state. And landing in a reasonably small community out there after 50.

Vote.
