    I sure hope there weren't any windmills nearby.

    Were we just fishing for shots about government incompetence with this story, or at least the headline?

    I am sure SL International Airport and the Aviation knew what WAS coming. Nice to have Satalite to pick this up. Scary which it is in the same path when planes travel for landing to airportS. Those birds are huge.

    Weather reporting and sensationalism go hand-in-hand. Why shouldn't headline writers join in the fun?

    The headline and the story do not match, it sounds like the weather Service had a handle on it all the way…the headline writer maybe not.

    Well if you like your swans, you can keep your swans. Period. If you want your exact swan you may have to pay more

    @ recyclable,

    I thought the same thing. But then I reread the title. It says the NWS radar mistakes the swans for storms, not the NWS itself.

    A rather misleading headline as there is nothing in the article that backs up the NWS mistaking the swans for storms. Article sounds more like they expect to see this, twice a year.
