Hey, Ancient! It's NORAD not NOMAD! Not NORDO, or whatever the Motherland aviators call loss of comm.

Brings back memories, as I was sworn in at the old NORAD HQ base O-club just after midnight a long time ago - Ent AFB. By then the Christmas tracking program was up and running.

Last I heard was Santa and all the elves had been tested for the bug and they are cleared to lurch in three weeks.

I hope that Santa files a flight plan.

North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD/ˈnɔːręd/), known until March 1981 as the North American Air Defense Command, is a combined organization of the United States and Canada that provides aerospace warning, air sovereignty, and protection for Northern America.[4] Headquarters for NORAD and the NORAD/United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) center are located at Peterson Air Force Base in El Paso County, near Colorado Springs, Colorado. The nearby Cheyenne Mountain Complex has the Alternate Command Center. The NORAD commander and deputy commander (CINCNORAD) are, respectively, a United States four-star general or equivalent and a Canadian three-star general or equivalent.

I was actually thinking of this NORAD whom I've dealt with extensively earlier, and which for many, but not necessarily the most needy ones, are considered the real Santa Claus.
