This is too much.
Watching The Weather Channel and it’s ‘crack’ team of reporters give commentary on Hurricane Gustav that make me look for a bottle of Jack Daniels.
The lovely Stephanie Abrams was on television about 15 minutes ago pulling plant stems and small branches out of a puddle and talking about the size of debris that you might want to avoid in case of high winds. I watched this little segment with creeping annoyance.
I think most people are smart enough to know that if they see a cross-tie, beam or light pole go flying by then they KNOW that the winds are dangerously high.
How stupid is that segment?
Since I’ve got a degree in Journalism, maybe I can go get a job at TWC making 6 figures and taking trips to Florida or other coastal regions to point out roofs with no shingles, trees laying on cars (wow, look at that! It’s a limb on a car!!!), or sticks floating in puddles.
What a bunch of silly-looking people.
