I curious, is the lake shut down like the last govt shut down? Gates across the roads, etc... are they turning people away?

According to the Denver Fox news last night, the National Parks will NOT be closed down. I assume that the Rec. areas fall under the same rule. Other govt. services at the parks may be limited. Sq

I am practically thrilled. The government can get into less mischief and spend less money when they are closed. The occasional inconvenience, if any, will be minimal.

Everyone should note that the last shutdown was purposely weaponized by the obama administration to inconvenience the public to the MAXIMUM extent possible. Parks closed, National Mall barricaded, etc, etc.

The fact is all employees will still get paid. Nobody loses any money. In the military we were always warned of the chance of a delay in paychecks arriving but, not a chance of them not getting there eventually. Inconvenient, perhaps but not the end of the world. Certainly not a reason to willfully inconvenience the public. The military still goes to work so there is NO reason for everyone else to not show up. Last time, many folks got a FULLY paid vacation albeit a rather short one.

FWIW

I'm guessing no one is there to charge or check vehicles coming into the park boundary, and I doubt any mussel inspection is taking place.

What I'm really wondering is; are the Park Rangers working? If they heard a SOS would they respond?

I'm not trying to make it political, just wondering what the Rangers do when this happens?

Wayne may be able to shed more light on this but, I believe it should be ops normal unless something changes.

I would think that would fall under first responders, public safety, defense, emergency, etc and would remain intact.
