"Please pay us": Alaska weather service workers embed shutdown message in forecast

The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang calls attention to this angle on the federal government shutdown: Unnamed National Weather Service employees in Alaska, displaying a sense of humor despite not being paid, included in their early-morning forecast discussion today the hidden message "Please pay us" in the text. The message was still visible as of Friday afternoon Alaska time. The same forecast discussion appears on the page without the hidden message.
