Wyoming producing coal is the only one that surprised me. I always associated coal with the Appalachians, i.e. Pennsylvania. Also, I figured Wyoming's population is small enough that the industry wouldn't be too mature there

You should see the coal trains out in Wyoming, rolling along under those wide open skies. Also Bloomberg's "From The Ashes" documentary about coal talks about Wyoming coal.

Ditto. The term "coal country" refers to PA, WV, KY, etc. Wyoming is about the last place I would've thought of as a coal producer. Probably more a function of the Appalachians being TOO mature, I'd guess. All the easy-to-get coal was mined there long ago, I suppose.

Yeah. Last I heard they dug out all the tops of the Appalachian mountains. It's gone.

I struggled with coal and textiles. My biggest surprise is how many stereotypes fit.

The North Antelope Rochelle coal mine in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming, US, is currently the world's largest coal mine by reserve. In 2013, there were 17 active coal mines in Wyoming, which produced 388 million short tons, 39 percent of all the coal mined in the US, and more than three times the production of second-place West Virginia.

Hmm. Four of the answers are California. As an average JetPunk user would say, too California-centric!

Really need to read the instructions. Wasted a lot of time before realising I could re-use Texas and California.
