There are many ways to be roused from sleep throughout the world, but because of our dense population and quiet evenings, these are a few that bother us the most.

    Garbage Man

    Although trash day is a very common (and weekly) occurrence, because Wyoming is quieter in general than most metropolitan areas, when a dumpster is dropped from more than a few feet above the ground, it is a truly horrific way to wake from a dead sleep.

    Wild Animals

    We love our wild animals, but usually that means served on a plate or hanging on a wall. They can be noisy or at the very least, cause our household pets to be equally noisy just by their presence.

    Loud Exhaust Pipes/Big Trucks

    It's no secret big trucks with lift kits and aftermarket exhausts are a thing in the Cowboy State, but they can easily wake you from a good night's rest.

    Drunken Friends/Roommate/Significant Other

    This is another problem all around the world, but there is no party like Wyoming party. While we can't prove it, we're about 99.99% sure the sentence "hold my beer and watch this!" originated somewhere here in Wyoming. 

    You can imagine what that means when you share sleeping areas with one of those types of people.

    Emergency Broadcast Alerts

    Not only are these scary and loud as hell, but when coupled with a spoken message that you normally can't fully understand, this makes it more than just annoying... now you're left unsure if it's a tornado, thunder storm, earthquake or the end of the world.
