On the menu bar above, you will find menu options for Weather and Comics.
The Weather menu option has been there from the beginning. Clicking on “Weather” will take you to the National Weather Service – Los Alamos – weather forecast page (sorry White Rock, we know that you are generally a few degrees warmer). Beside the local forecast, the national weather service (or NOAA) provides excellent satelite images, too, among other great weather related information.
The Comics menu option is new and will take you to the “Yahoo News Comics” page where you will find a simply incredible list of practically every comic strip known to man! The Los Alamos Daily Post’s favorites include Doonsbury, Dilbert and Garfield. Not only are they in 3D, but they are in color, too. You will see TODAY’s version of each comics strip in most cases. We know it’s hard to believe, but it is all true (except the 3D part). You can also go back and see the strips you might have missed when you were away on vacation. So start catching up on what you have missed. Editorial comics are found near the bottom of the Yahoo News Comics page.
