ANTELOPE HILLS, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) – A Natrona County resident called our newsroom to let us know that they and other neighbors in…
Some have no way out.
Antelope Hills is about 20 miles north of Casper. Road condition in 1-25 is very good. And Frontage Road leading to Antelope Hills is also passable. But going to Frontage Road? This is another story.
It makes the situation difficult for both residents and snowplows… Many roads are not paved at all. Either that or I wasn’t on the road anymore, take your pick. Since I was unable to visit the Snowy Residents, I spoke to one of Phyllis Lattea on the phone.
Lattea says: “A neighbor has an excavator and did everything he could. Then another neighbor has a helicopter. For a while they kept it. Keeping it from November. But these last storms really got us.”
Lattea says she called the Natrona Road and Bridge Department…
“Yes, we did.” And they said there was nothing they could do (now). They have 800 miles of road to take care of first. And they put us on the list.”
Lattea says some neighbors have been snowed in for a week and are worried about their well-being.
“I think we care more about other people here because they don’t have it as well as we do. That is, they do not have running water. They don’t have electricity. They do not have propane, from propane. They run on generators, you know. And they are good people. “
Latte worries the situation could get worse if a snowstorm hits before the county clears the roads.
In the interest of a fair report… we contacted the district road and bridge department.
At the time of our call, none of the officials could talk… Because everyone was going to plow the roads.
