I haven't watched the local weatherman in probably a year. The reasons are this. For one they seem to make it worse than it is. For example I remember they use to say, when they were calling for snow, "Don't Go Out Unless You Have To". Do they relize how that affects private business owners when people stay home. Or they would call for a winter storm watch when calling for only 1-3 inches of snow. The same thing happend in the summer. When they were calling for a high of 90 degrees, they would say "Don't Go Outside, Stay In The Air Conditioning". The other reason was the legnth of the forcast. It went on and on and on. One time I switched to the weather channel when the local weather man started his forcast. They gave the weather, the 5 day forcast, when I switched back to the local weather man, he was still talking. The Weather Channel was just starting to give the weather again 8 minutes later and he was still talking. The Weather Channel is what I watch now all the time. The Weather on the 8's is perfect. You can get the weather forcast in 2 minutes. What more do you want. My question is does anyone really watch the local channels for the weather anymore? I sure don't.
