  • It never fails, they do it every time

    Every time a hurricane rolls in, the news media rolls in while everyone else is evacuating, they set up and pester folks that are getting out and those that choose to ride out the storm. Then when the rain and winds start, these goofballs get out there in it to show us its raining! They act like nobody has ever seen rain or the wind blowing hard. And itís not just once or twice, itís twice an hour, dodging raindrops and flying debris all the while telling everybody else to stay inside! Same thing during big snowstorms.

    Hey folks, itís nature! Violent, but natural weather nonetheless. We know what it looks like, thatís why weíre inside watching it on TV and not risking our lives being out in it unless our jobs require it. Just show us where itís going, give us an estimate of how strong it is and how much damage to expect, and leave it be. We donít need play by play, foot by foot of where it is just let us know when to duck!

    Gotta fill the 24 hour news cycle somehow I guess.......

    Weather Channel is the worst. I swear they can sensationalize a 2" snow fall. I have their app on my phone because they have a great radar but their alerts that I can't seem to permanently shut off suck.

      News this morning they were showing a kite surfer having the time of his life as the storm approached. Guy clearly knew his craft and they were just yelling about how he was doing exactly what our gov't wanted him to not do. I enjoyed watching the video. Guy was quite good doing crazy jumps and spins. Apparently, he owned a kite surfing store. Probably doesn't get conditions like that too often. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness I say. Just know the risk is that they may not be coming to save you. Mind you, this was filmed pretty early yesterday. Nice wind and rain, but not crazy conditions. Could be a darwin candidate, but he knows the risk. Let the man be.
      It isn't an official project until you've bled on it!
