  •  Yup, it sucks (5+ / 0-)

    Being that I used to work for a private weather outfit that relied on GOES-E and GOES-W along with a host of other NOAA and NWS data to save lives, this really supremely sucks.

    What's worse it that to a man, all of the mets I used to work with are either die hard Libertarians or staunch Republicans who will support anyone calling for less money for the government.

    Then they wonder why all of a sudden they are having to struggle along with GOES-West and ground stations.
