WFO: Can you check ASOS? It appears offline.

Why would it be sited in a hole/depression like that?
Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

If you ask the FAA why the ASOS is sited where it is they will tell you giving out that information is a violation of security.  :roll:
