    Friday Before Wyoming Football Opening Day

    Usually in late August or early September. We should all have the Friday off to make the pilgrimage to Laramie for a brown and gold celebration.

    It's Too Cold For Work Day

    Varies

    Every Wyomingite should be allowed one day per year where weather is the excuse. Don't feel like scraping your windshield? Use the "It's too cold" pass.
