The Daily Breeze: Only 363 more days till next year’s Christmas

Hey there,

Wow, I can’t believe Christmas is over! We have to wait another 363 days till next year’s Christmas…but that’s okay because we can still have some fun with some other great holidays. Let’s not forget New Year’s Day coming up soon!

Check out what the Breeze blew in from our long Christmas weekend: read the story on how many people the Wyoming Rescue Mission fed, see the story about which roads are getting closed due to weather, and see what it’s like to go to virtual school in Wyoming!

Casper is expecting a high of 36°F today with a windy mix of clouds. There are a few snow showers possible throughout the day. That Breeze is coming from the SW at 25 to 35 mph.

Road closed again? No surprise there!

High winds and winter conditions have prompted the Wyoming Department of Transportation to close parts of I-25 and I-80. Hold on to your hat out there, Casper, and be safe if you’re still trying to travel for the holidays!
