(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - A documentary will tell the story of the "Storm of a Century: The Blizzard of 49," and how tragedy and loss also brought hope and heroism among Wyomingites. A violent snow storm that swept through the state for 45 days shut down public services, entire communities were immobilized, and towns ran out of food and livestock began to die. *Cheyenne, Wyo. vehicles in 1949 covered in snow. h/t Wyoming PBS/Pitchengine Communities* Wyoming PBS reported that, "Wyoming citizens from all walks of life cooperated together and demonstrated exceptional ingenuity in the face of dire circumstances.
