Brent, are you going to be there? I'm going to try to go!

I'm going to try to go Brandie. Depends on how things go with the baby that day (she's cutting teeth and has been having a rough go at napping). If I do go, it will probably be late morning to early afternoon on Saturday. You'd totally love it though.

Thanks for the reminder isr. I was planning to attend but forgot to write it down. It will be a cool weekend for sure.

As far as I know, based on previous NWS open houses I have worked at or been to, cameras are welcome at this event. There will be some cool photo ops with a balloon release, a walk through the floor where they issue forecasts and warnings and I see Bob Ryan from ABC7 in DC will be there for part of it as well, so I'm sure you'll want to bring a camera along.
