Header on my NWS office web page this morning:

Quote:Due to the Federal Government shutdown, NOAA.gov and most associated
web sites are unavailable. However, because the information this site provides is
necessary to protect life and property, it will be updated and maintained during
the Federal Government shutdown.
Really sucks when tools the government provides for you to perform your day to day operations are deemed non-essential:

This shut down just added an extra day to 85% of our survey work. We can still do it but some of our money pinching clients are not going to be happy.
The Shutdown News locally:

1. They've called in the 82 Airborne to block access to the WWII Memorial by Honor Flight WWII vets

2. Michelle Obama's TWITTER staff has been laid off.

3. They're blocking off Mt Rushmore

Okay, I better correct that - they've moved in Barricades plus twice as many NPS service Security Guards to block the public and the WWII vets from the WWII war memorial. They have NOT called in the 82nd Airborne. Yet.

Oh, and Black Fleet helicopters have NOT put a Tarp over Mt Rushmore - that's an IOTW satire on whats going on in DC.
