Grateful Memories of McCormick Jr. High School in Downtown Cheyenne


Anyone else attend McCormick Jr. High School when it was downtown?

Summer vacation is dwindling down and it won't be long before school starts. This week, my son, Jerry, got registered for seventh grade and it made me think back to my junior high days.

Grateful Memories of McCormick Jr High’s Kickball Field

Do you remember playing kickball at McCormick Jr. High in downtown Cheyenne?

Tell Us Your Favorite Blizzard Story

Have you survived a Spring blizzard?

Tell us your favorite story of making it through a big storm. Who knows, maybe part of your story will be a good lesson for someone out there to help them survive in a blizzard.

As I write this, Cheyenne has received about 2 inches of snow from this Arctic blast but the winds are howling and creating drifts more than a foot high in places already.

When I left the radio station Monday night, a drift in the parking lot must have been ten inches deep and the heavy wet snowflakes hurt as they blew sideways into your face. Visibilities on the roads home were diminished to whiteout conditions when I passed Holliday Park on 19th Street.

Over the years, I've lived through several blizzards in Wyoming and have Grateful Memories of many of them. Thought I'd share one, if you have one, share yours too.

Grateful Flashback to Shoreline Amphitheatre October 2, 1988

Do you remember your favorite concert?

My memory of a Grateful Dead show 23 years ago was as foggy as the Golden Gate Bridge in this photo.

Luckily, my friend Hoang "Jack" Pham was there and remembers a few more of the details, so he's "phantom blogging" this from Barrow, Alaska.

"We rented a Toyota in southern California and headed up the coast to Mountain View in the Bay area."
