Took a very interesting tour (about two hours long) with Pat. He did such a great job outlining the role of the weather service. One of those things you take for granted (or grumble about) and now it was demystified! Highly recomment!

Very informative and interesting, even for someone not that much into weather. Our student guide was very friendly and knew her stuff. Nice that's it free. Thankfully we knew to make reservations ahead of time for the tour.

The locations is easy to find -- right off highway 9. Plenty of parking. You have to have clearance or with someone who has clearance to gain entry. Massive space with cool things happening.

Visit the observation deck. The storm center where they monitor storms. See pictures of destruction of storms of the past. Fun tour.
