“It's invariably going to happen: We're going to have a blizzard warning. The phones are going to go off and everyone will ask, 'What the heck?'”
That sort of thing is why forecasters hope for a good turnout at the open house. It's a golden opportunity to get the message out about how people can stay aware of weather conditions and react if things turn dangerous.
The open house is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. The Des Moines office is located at 9607 NW Beaver Drive, Johnston. Forecasters can't guarantee good weather that day, but they have their fingers crossed.
