Today, President Trump announced the end of the federal government shutdown. For a few weeks, anyway. The government will reopen until February 15, as negotiations on border security continue. Today on the Indicator, we talk to one forest service worker - who was furloughed - about how he fared through the shutdown, and how he feels now that it's over.
