Attention Mr. Trump
There is a tremendous blizzard raging over eastern Wyoming and parts of southeast Montana, far southwest North Dakota and far northwest South Dakota. This includes parts of Interstates 90 and 25 during the busy Christmas travel period. But, you wouldn't know from the radar. Why? Because it is in one of the serious radar gaps we have in our nation.
People I speak to in Washington say there are moves to purchase some radars to plug these gaps which are badly, badly needed. I'm hoping the incoming Administration will be amenable to these plans.
