Article about the Birmingham NWS

There was a nice article about the Birmingham National Weather Service Office in yesterday's Shelby County Reporter.

"Darone Jones spends most of his time at work playing on the computer.But it's not what you think. There's no shopping on eBay or trying to beat solitaire. No, his goofing around is pretty serious, and it might just save your life someday.Jones and the entire staff at the National Weather Service in Calera get to play (and work) everyday with some neat technology - stuff that would make Star Wars look like the Stone Age."We've got $15 million of cool toys here," said Jones, one of five lead forecasters. "The neat thing about our software is, if you think of it weather-wise, you can build it."
