Wyoming Cold Proves Too Much For Moscow Ballet Troupe

There is no cold like a Wyoming cold.

You'd think a ballet troupe from Russia might be able to take that cold but even the Moscow ballet couldn't move through it.

The traveling troupe was in Casper performing the Nutcracker, but when the temperature plunged to 31 degrees below zero, the dancers couldn't start their tour bus.

The group cancelled one of their shows as a result. After their sugar plums have finally defrosted, they'll dance in the warmer climes of Denver this weekend.
