weather stuff

I am starting to get sick of the weather alarmists.  As of last night I heard that there were going to be massive thunderstorms, howling winds, damaging hail, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!  And what happened?  A bit of soaking rain.  A few rumbles of thunder.  And now the wind will start at 2am.  And it won’t be as bad as first thought.

I know that predicting the weather is a difficult, thankless job.  But is it really necessary to flash dire warnings and have crawls every 20 minutes when there’s a 90% chance of NOTHING?  I’m sure that’s not the weather guy’s fault.  I just wish the TV stations weren’t so damned anxious to spread panic in the chase for ratings.  At leeast that’s how I see it.
