WFO Huntsville Celebrates One Year of Operations

The National Weather Service office in Huntsville celebrated its first anniversary of operations on January 14, 2004. Staff members at the office and their families commemorated the event by gathering together for a special luncheon on the 13th. U.S. Rep. Bud Cramer (D-AL) joined the festivities as well, noting how much had changed at the office in just 12 months (pictures of our first day are available in the About Us section).

Happy Birthday, WFO HUN
