[IDD #GQL-732859]: Effect of government shutdown on IDD feeds

> Hey guys-
Hi Don, 

We can discuss more at lunch as well.

No, at least I have not, maybe Linda has, I 'll check. My thoughts are that 
NCEP is considered
a vital interest and will continue operations, and that would include CONDUIT

Why?..is there human intervention needed for these services, aside from 
standard maintenance?

I suspect some IT folks at NOAA may be considered "vital" as well, not sure how 
that plays out.

If the "lock out" goes on for a long time, obviously things will begin to 
crater, but we and NCEP will still be up and running, providing data and 
services to the community.
