    Apparently President Trump has nominated Accuweather's Barry Myers to head NOAA. Not exactly sure how I feel about that. Could Trump administration's plan to slash 17% of NOAA's budget through privatization?

    These blurbs don't make feel too easy about his nomination either...

    I was so stunned this morning learning about this that I nearly missed the morning bus to the city(didn't thanks to fast feet and shortcuts). A fox guarding the henhouse. I'll leave it at that.
