Short Simple Video on Nat'l Weather Service's New "Dual-Pol Radar" - how it benefits YOU


All National Weather Service offices in the U.S. will upgrade their Doppler radar to dual-polarization radar. Here’s why that will provide better forecasts. 
1) With the dual-pol upgrade, meteorologists will be able to transmit and receive information in both horizontally and vertically in the atmosphere.
2) These upgrades will improve the accuracy and identification of precipitation types, precipitation estimates, and even be able to view tornadoes better.
3) These upgrades will continue across the United States and all offices should have the dual polarization technology installed by May 2013.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
