With Congress in stalemate mode, Sen. Maj. Leader Harry Reid referencing George Orwell and the shutdown officially in effect, here’s a look at what’s being affected in Nevada—and what’s not.

Affected:

National parks, visitor centers and campgrounds operated by the National Parks Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service. This includes the closure of Red Rock Canyon facilities, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and 16 BLM campgrounds statewide. Scholarships and financial aid for university students could also be delayed, and many federal employees are being furloughed.

Not affected:

Social Security, Veterans Services, the U.S. Postal Service, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI and the National Weather Service. So don’t worry, you’ll still get severe thunderstorm warnings should the weather gods revolt against the government shutdown.
