Wayne, what the ---- are you still doing there? The wife made me get off the computer early last night, and I hadn't a chance to check in till now.
Ed, your late night post on the previous topic didn't make me feel any better when I read it this am. Surprisingly, after really hyping Isabel all yesterday, the local media are really downplaying it this morning. Even my lame cable company, which has it's own traffic & weather channel, aren't mentioning Isabel at all, save for mentioning we'll get some winds "from the tight pressure gradient which will develop from" (GET THIS) "what WAS Hurricane Isabel and the building high in Maine." PAST TENSE. Hey, if they're right, that's fine by me, but this seems quite irresponsible. There are a lot of people I know who depend on this forecast because it runs every two minutes and they might not have time to wait for "their local on the eights" or the main media forecasts. Speaking of my local on the eights, they aren't much better either, but they use the NWS forecasts...
Question, if you're the WEATHER channel, why not use the NWS PLUS your own observations? Seems like a cop out to me.
Another anxious 24-36 hours or so.
