There are other ways to know, as a friend recently shared with me. Here are:
You Might Live in Wyoming ...
-- If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May.
-- If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there.
-- If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time.
-- If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number
-- If "Vacation" means going anywhere south of Salt Lake City for the weekend.
-- If you measure distance in squares of farm land.
-- If you know several people who have hit a cow more than once.
-- If you have gone from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.
-- If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.
-- If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked.
-- If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them.
-- If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
-- If the I-80 speed limit is 75 mph -- you're going 90 and everybody is passing you.
-- If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
-- If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.
-- If you have more hours on your snow blower than miles on your car.
