The National Weather Service has a hidden message for Congress

Weather National Congress Message

Large chunks of the National Weather Service--the group of scientists partially responsible for predicting extreme weather events, among many other important weather-related duties--are still working despite the government shutdown debacle. They're just doing it without that whole "pay" detail. Upsetting.

ABC affiliate station meteorologist Mike Masco apparently found a hidden message to Congress, venting that frustration, buried in some standard weather alerts. (You can see the alert here. As of writing, it's still there. Scroll down a bit.)

But seriously. They need to get paid ( via ).
