An unpredictable location in Southeastern Wyoming with odd weather patterns. Viewed as many as uninhabitable, it instead is Mother Nature's way of weeding out all the obnovious loser liberals and out-of-state sissies who think that Laramie is horrible. That way, the hard-working, intelligent, conservative folk actually have a decent getaway from the world's garbage. That is, when the weather is cooperative, mostly in the summer.
"Geez, I hate Washington and Oregon. Such cesspools."
'We should move somewhere without all this, that's nice.'
"Yeah! Somewhere like Laramie!"
Not as big as Fort Collins, not as pretty as Fort Collins and not as much to do as Fort Collins, but at least it has successful athletic programs. And college graduates from Laramie can actually find work.
No matter how hard Fort Collins tries, it will never quite match Laramie, Wyoming.
