Christmas storm stranded motorists in county


The latest snow storm that swept through Cheyenne County at the end of December led to a few stranded motorists on county roads.

Cheyenne County Sheriff John Jenson said all travelers were eventually dug out and no injuries were reported, but the episode highlighted the importance of being prepared when driving in the winter.

"We had a few people that were going from Point A to Point B and got stuck," he said.

While attempting to reach the stranded motorists, deputies also became stuck in the snow. Jenson said the county road department assisted and was able to get everyone to safety.
