Wyoming experienced traffic normally seen in places like Los Angeles California.
Bumper to bumper traffic creeping along at 5 miles an hour is not normal in the least populated state in the nation.
But it was the reality yesterday as eclipse watchers headed home after viewing the total solar eclipse yesterday.
According to the Wyoming Department of Transportation, a 27% increase in vehicles over the weekend compared to normal numbers in mid-August.
One local resident reported traveling just 30 miles in a span of 5 ½ hours on I25.
For those stuck in traffic after yesterday’s celestial event, the good news is the next total solar eclipse in 2024 will miss the Cowboy state.
