Yes, you did. The HDS computer has been shut down at the NWS due to budget cuts and the following DiFAX charts ("D" numbers) will not be produced UFN, whenever they get a chance to produce these on their CRAY computer (this may take a long time for some of these to get fixed): 18, 23, 35, 37, 38, 40, 45, 66, 74, 81, 86, 87, 159, 181, 184, 186, 189, 193, 218, 222, 227, 263, 270, and 280. This includes NGM boundary layer wind, weather depiction, 12 hour surface pressure change, composite moisture and other DiFAX charts. So, no degredation of service with the budget cuts, eh?
