    Weather Nerds: Warnings/Forecast Might Get Tougher

    Link to story from dsmweather.com (Jason Parkin's site)

    Granted, supposedly this bill doesn't have a prayer to make it out of the senate...but weather balloon launches cut from twice a day to once every other day? Models would be worth even less at that point. No more hurricane hunters?

    How much worse can it really get?


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Suck it up weatherman! Rub some dirt on it, and get back out there! Predicting weather is all about overcoming adversity!

    I'm pretty sure that if we moved the white house and congress to tornado alley, funding would go way up once the politicians saw their first live tornado.
