Weather Blog?

I've been following the NWS "Discussions" for a few days now - as Matt points out, they are the best way to get 'real' information about the storm. And you get to appreciate Forecaster Franklin and Forecaster Beven, with their clipped teletype personalities.

But the updates, and (for some reason - I'm not sure why) phrases like "A NEW AIRCRAFT SHOULD BE ARRIVING AT THE CENTER SHORTLY," suddenly struck me as almost personal and blog-like. Which I suppose just forces me to re-evaluate my definition of a blog. I began to wonder how long they had been doing the "conversations" aspect of the alerts ... seems like I need to do some digging...
