[McIDAS #GZV-720955]: Cloud drift wind vectors available via ADDE?

I seem to recall that cloud drift winds are available via ADDE somewhere,
but I can't recall exactly where at the moment.

I did a Google search using 'cloud drift winds +md' and found an interesting
article by Chris Velden (SSEC/CIMSS):


In this article, Chris notes that cloud drift winds can be found on SSEC
and NESDIS FTP servers:
