It is known around this time of the year that the weather can be unpredictable. However, this last week it was a little bit more than expected. The entire State of Wyoming experienced one of the worst storms in the last decade. Left in the wake of this monstrous storm was Pine Bluffs covered in feet of snow; school closed for two days and many of its residence buried and stuck in their homes.

A handful of Pine Bluffs High School's teachers, staff and students saw this opportunity as a call to action and took to the streets with shovels and snow blowers, even Ag teacher Brian Cox in a skid-steer. In order to assure that the members of the community and school could become fully operational again we hit the streets ready to move some snow.

Students Seth Tangeman, Tucker and Savannah Norman, Scout Steward, Dylan, Ty and Avery Sweeter, Gregory Fornstrom, Diana Sanchez, James Merryfield, Travis Lerwick and a handful of staff members were hard at work from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm helping uncovering some local residents homes, apartment complexes and last but not least the school so that it would be functional come Monday.

This shows the bond our school has with our community to come together for a greater cause and to work as one unit. The students whom attended did so out of their good faith to help our community. This speaks volumes of the stature of our students, so eager to help the community. I know there is still quite a bit of snow left in Pine, but at least there was a small dent put in the problem thanks to the students and staff of Pine Bluffs High School.
